City Visions: Author C Pam Zhang and San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus

C Pam Zhang, author of How Much of These Hills is Gold

C Pam Zhang's debut novel, “How Much of These Hills is Gold," tells a haunting tale of two Chinese-American siblings during the gold rush era as they set out to bury their dead father.   A beautiful story woven with grief and hope, Ms. Zhang brings to life and gives a voice to a group of people often omitted from the story of the American West.  

We'll also hear the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus' "Truly Brave" and get the latest local update on the novel coronavirus.
