Shanghai on the Willamette

Geography quiz: what river runs through Shanghai?
Virginia would tell you it’s the Whangpoo (or Huangpu in today’s spelling). But I’m beginning to think it’s the Willamette. Willamette_Writers

At least, my Shanghai finds its home on the Willamette, the river that runs through Portland, Oregon. And tomorrow night, Portland will get a taste of My Shanghai when we screen our Kickstarter trailer at the Willamette Writers Conference FilmLab.

It’s exciting, screening for a big crowd. A first for us. Joan Macbeth and I will be doing a Q&A afterwards to field all those questions. How the project got started, what about the filming… we’ll be ready. Especially if this comes up —

“What river runs through Shanghai?”
