This
event will be interesting!  I know many of the authors included in
this anthology.  Hayne Wai is my cousin – That's our grandmother
in the picture with my father and his mother, and our Auntie Rose,
Uncle James and Uncle Gilbert.

Dan
Seto is a dragon boater on the Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat
team.  Dan joined the team after we met at a CCHSBC event last
year.

Chan and her brother Larry are family friends.  Shirley's mother
did a lot of community work in Chinatown and was recently featured in
an episode of
Mother Tongue
