The CCC community is proud to celebrate the recent publication of our very own Dickson Lam's debut book, Paper Sons: A Memoir, by Autumn House Press. Join us Thursday, April 5, 3-4:30 p.m. at Fireside Hall to meet Professor Lam and learn more about the book.

About the book:
Set in a public housing project in San Francisco, Paper Sons explores Lam’s transformation from a teenage graffiti writer to a high school teacher working with troubled youth while navigating the secret violence in his immigrant family’s past.

“What a superb, moving, tough, and courageous memoir. Lam has given us the gift of his heart.”
—Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize winner
