Join us at this week’s 5:01 meeting at the University Club to hear from guest speaker, Patti Isaacs.

In 1981, while China still operated under the old collective economic system, Patti Isaacs and her husband lived and worked in the city of Xian, witnessing the last days of communism and the very beginning of China’s transition to a market economy.

In 2005, returning to Xi’an to work for two months, she documented how the city had changed. She reunited with former students who were among the architects of China’s modern economic miracle.

Patti will present rare photos of a world that no longer exists and speak about how China’s economic miracle affected the lives of friends who lived through it based on her memoir The Second Long March; Memoir from a Witness to China’s Transformation.
