Hawaiian graphic novelist and artist Roy Chang will be back at CHSA on Sunday, March 17 to discuss his latest graphic novel, “Highball and Pepe,” which introduces two Federal Railway agents who travel in their Solar/Steam Train across the country. Taking place in 1890’s Chinatown, San Francisco where they meet and join forces with real-life Donaldina Cameron (of Cameron House). Ms. Cameron was credited with the rescue and care of over 3,000 young Chinese females from human trafficking and taking on those who profited from the Chinese Exclusion Act. Creative liberty is taken in his story, but the locations and stories of Chinese immigrants facing social injustices are told in the context.
Mr. Chang will also give away free sketches and have open drawing tables for kids. Signed comic books will be available for sale at the event, each book includes a free mini b&w print.
Free with museum admission. RSVP on Eventbrite >
