Retired NBC Universal executive Paula Williams Madison discusses her powerful memoir “Finding Samuel Lowe: From Harlem to China” at 6 p.m. on Monday, August 22 in the Cerritos Library Skyline Room. The free event is open to the public.
Raised in Harlem by their Chinese Jamaican mother, Madison and her brothers embark on a journey to trace their ancestral roots. In a true rags-to-riches tale, from welfare recipients to wealthy entrepreneurs, Madison’s book is a personal account of the challenging search for her maternal grandfather, which takes her and her siblings to Jamaica and China. “Kirkus” reviews described the book as “A well-structured memoir told in brief, punchy vignettes alternating between past and present.”
The 88-minute video of “Finding Samuel Lowe: From Harlem to China” will be screened before the author’s talk. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
Cerritos Library is located at 18025 Bloomfield Avenue. For more information, call (562) 916-1342.
