Sunday, February 21 – 10 a.m.
Chinatown Pretty!
Writer Valerie Luu
Live Streamed from Bird & Beckett

Inaugurating a series of occasional Sunday morning chats, Valerie Luu was at Bird & Beckett on February 21st in conversation with Jeremy Dan Fish via live stream to talk about her book, with Andria Lo, Chinatown Pretty!

You can play back the conversation that took place on facebook or youtube

From our pre-event post:  They’ll talk about what Valerie and her colleague, the photographer Andria Lo, found when they dove into the most pleasurable pursuit of discovering the dimensions of the fascinating, beguiling and individualized fashion sense so evident in the Bay Area’s Chinese communities once you stop to look.

Send your comments and questions in the chat, and we’ll relay them to Valerie.

See you Sunday morning!

If you can’t catch these Sunday morning chats in real time, you’ll find them on our YouTube channel and Facebook page after the fact, so no worries. But it’ll be a nice thing to do Sunday morning in your robe and slippers, or when you get back from your run.


Valerie Luu was born and raised in Sunnyvale, where she studied journalism before furthering those studies at UC Santa Cruz. She moved to San Francisco and embarked on her writing career here in the summer of 2008. Besides that work, she is half of Rice Paper Sisters, a Vietnamese pop-up restaurant.

Jeremy Dan Fish was born in Albany, New York in 1974 and came to San Francisco in 1994 to attend the San Francisco Art Institute. Fish strives to find a balance between commercial illustration projects and exhibiting his work internationally. He was the first-ever SFAC artist in residency at SF City Hall in 2015 to celebrate the 100th birthday of the building. In that year, Mayor Ed Lee declared November 19th “Jeremy Fish Day” in the City. In 2016, he created the Haight Street Bronze Bunny statue, the largest crowd funded public bronze statue in California; and he was artist in residence at Coit Tower in San Francisco in the summer of 2017.
