WordFest highlights “My Shanghai”

On Sunday, My Shanghai will be the focus of a seminar at the 4th Annual Ojai WordFest in beautiful Ojai, California. This awesome opportunity came at the invitation of the festival’s director, Mary Sequoia Hamilton, after she saw the film in San Luis Obispo.

Thank you, Mary!

Here’s the official class description:
