We are very excited to have Nelson Ponta-Garça, author of the newly released book “The Portuguese in California – The History of Generations” visiting us from the Azores on Thursday April 29th 11am at the Macau Cultural Center, 109 J Street, Fremont, CA 94536 to sign and talk about his new book.
This beautifully illustrated book in English inspired by the acclaimed bilingual documentary “Portuguese in California” also produced by Ponta-Garça, showcases the Portuguese-American community living in California. It provides insight into the history and every-day lives of the courageous Portuguese immigrants, as well as their descendants, who now account for more than one million spread throughout the State, from San Diego, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, the San Joaquin Valley to the state Capitol.
Their inspirational stories captured between the covers of this book are nothing short of a tribute to their legacy to California, their families and communities, and to their motherland, be it the Azores, Madeira, continental Portugal or any of the former Portuguese colonies from where they hailed.
Limited copies will be available for sale at the event for USD 49.99
or bring yours to be signed by the author if you have already purchased one.
Book is also available for purchase from www.PortugueseIn.com or Amazon
which includes free online access to the HD viewing of
“Portuguese in California, New England, and Hawaii” documentaries
Fantastic Book! Highly recommended!
