Shan Dong restaurant
328 10th Street, Oakland
Contact:Jayma Brown (jaymaghana@earthlink.net)


Join us for dinner and a book discussion of RPCV book Kosher Chinese. We will be meeting at Shan Dong restaurant in downtown Oakland's Chinatown (between Webster and Harrison). This restaurant makes its own handmade noodles that are delicious.

The book we will be discussing Kosher Chinese by Michael Levy. Amazon describes it this way: In September of 2005, the Peace Corps sent Michael Levy to teach English in the heart of China's heartland. His hosts in the city of Guiyang found additional uses for him: resident expert on Judaism, romantic adviser, and provincial basketball star, to name a few. His account of overcoming vast cultural differences to befriend his students and fellow teachers is by turns poignant and laugh-out-loud funny.

Share what you thought of the book or hear what others have to say about it and then decide if you want to read it. You don't have to have read the book to attend. Everyone is welcomed. Please RSVP to jaymaghana@earthlink.net so I have an idea of who and how many to expect.
