The weather forecast says it's gonna be a crappy day on Saturday in San Francisco. Don't even think about kite flying at Crissy Field, lolling in the sun at Alamo Square or skipping along the Embarcadero. Just forget about it. The place to be (at least from 11am until noon) is Book Passge at the Ferry Building. I'll be signing copies of my latest children's book To Grandmother's House: A Visit to Old-Town Beijing
And for NO EXTRA CHARGE, Aidong Ni the translator will also be there. It's a two-for-one kinda deal. It's also the day of the Chinese New Year's Parade. It's the Year of the Rat. So for all you folks who were born in 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984 or 1996 it's YOUR YEAR! Mine too. I'm a Rat.
Mention REDROOM and get ...well... I'll think of something.
