When the Red Gates Opened was published on September 22 and immediately became a #1 new release on Amazon in two categories.

During the week of publication, I celebrated with two fantastic events:

  • fun launch event with dozens of friends and family sponsored by Brick & Mortar Books of Redmond, Washington, and
  • a webinar presentation at the National Committee on US-China Relations, based in New York, which attracted more than 110 participants.

I was delighted and honored that so many warm-hearted people helped me celebrate.

 

If you missed these, don’t worry! Here are two more, this coming week:

Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 7 pm Pacific at Island Books, Mercer Island, WA. To join this virtual book launch event on click Zoom link here. For Zoom password, send me an email.

Thursday, Oct. 1 at 4 pm Pacific/ 7 pm Eastern, webinar hosted by the Washington State China Relations Council, Seattle.  Interviewer: Leslie Helm. To register (free), click this link.

 

I also plan on speaking at these two invitation-only virtual events:

Tuesday, October 6, noon Eastern: a webinar talk for SAIS China, for students and graduates of Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies who specialize in China.

Saturday, October 10, at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific: a virtual class reunion and book talk for members of the Hathaway Brown School Class of 1972.
