Lecture, book signing, and reception: "Rabbit on a Bumpy Road," a biography of Tom Hom.

Introduction by San Diego City Council President Todd Gloria.

*Must register through the website.

Tom Hom is a pioneer who in 1963 made San Diego history by becoming the first minority ever elected to the San Diego City Council. Later, this Chinese-American won a seat to the California State Assembly. Tom helped transform San Diego’s skid row into the vibrant Gaslamp Quarter Historic District and led efforts to establish the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum. His book tells a story of courage and endurance in meeting life’s challenges to achieve “The American Dream.”

A reception with light refreshments will follow the lecture.
