Details:

Compared to our monthly Happy Hours that regularly get 100s of attendees, the book club meetings are significantly smaller events where Asian professionals get together in a more intimate environment to chat over dinner and drinks.

This event is free for members and non-members alike — BUT please buy DINNER AND AT LEAST ONE DRINK to support our venue.

The article we will be discussing this month is:

Moving to U.S. and Amassing a Fortune, No English Needed by Kirk Semple

In New York City, successful non-English-speaking entrepreneurs like Mr. Sanchez have emerged from the largest immigrant populations, including those from China, South Korea and Spanish-speaking countries.Among them is Zhang Yulong, 39, who emigrated from China in 1994 and now presides over a $30-million-a-year cellphone accessories empire in New York with 45 employees.

Kim Ki Chol, 59, who arrived in the United States from South Korea in 1981, opened a clothing accessories store in Brooklyn and went on to become a successful retailer, real estate investor and civic leader in the region’s Korean diaspora.

Hope to see you there!
