The Campus Store Arcata is honored to host author Karen Price along with Betty Chinn for the book talk and signing of the October 2023 Cal Poly Humboldt press release, "The Gray Bird Sings: The Extraordinary Life of Betty Kwan Chinn." This 252 page account of the life of Betty Chinn follows her early years escaping China during the Cultural Revolution, and the atrocities she endured there, and follows her journey in her to her new home of Eureka California. Her humanitarian work in Humboldt County has been recognized by many, including Barack Obama, who awarded her with the Presidential Citizens Medal. Hailed as the “Hong Kong Angel,” and beloved by her community in Humboldt, this recounting of Betty's life and work will make you want to be a better person. She miraculously survived the most vile brutalities to become a beacon for humanity, and an inspiration for all.
