Book Club | “Thousand Pieces of Gold” by Ruthanne Lum McCunn

Sold into slavery in China and smuggled into California, Lalu Nathoy (also known as Polly Bemis) ended up running a boarding house in Idaho and became noted for her healing, gardening and fishing skills. Based on a true story, the novel offers a revealing look at life for Chinese in the early West. Join us for coffee and a great discussion led by docent Helen Huntley.
