Wei Wei will be signing copies of her book Tracing Our Footsteps: Fifteen Tales of Hope, Struggle, and Triumph.


About the book: 

Would Yong Da be able to embrace this land of freedom and reside permanently on foreign soil? In 2004, nearly three years after his wife passed away, Yong Da, the author’s father embarked upon the journey of his life to America. Aged and broken-hearted, he was looking for a new beginning. This humorous, moving, and rich memoir is about the author’s efforts to help her dad to fit into a new environment and to re-establish their relationship. It focuses on ordinary, but profound experiences that a father and a daughter shared, reflecting upon their personal values, perspectives, and priorities during a five-year period and offers the reader insight into the life and struggle of a contemporary immigrant family.

Tracing Our Footsteps: Fifteen Tales of Hope, Struggle, and Triumph is truly remarkable — a story of a journey shared regardless of age, race, gender or cultural backgrounds.
