The History Book Group will meet at 6:00 p.m. Thurs. March 19th on the 2nd floor of the library to discuss Gordon Chang’s “The Ghosts of Gold Mountain: The Epic Story of the Chinese Who Built the Transcontinental Railroad.” Chinese migrants spent years building the Transcontinental Railroad. Those who survived would suffer a different kind of death—a historical one, as they were pushed first to the margins of American life and then to the fringes of public memory. Award-winning scholar Gordon H. Chang draws on unprecedented research to recover the Chinese railroad workers’ stories and celebrate their role in remaking America.
