The GOING THROUGH PAGES ROCK N ROLL BOOK CLUB presents a discussion of the first half of the book "I Didn't Make A Million: How Jazz Came To China" by Whitey Smith.

Whitey Smith was the first jazz star in Shanghai, China, arriving in 1922. Pearl Buck said he taught China to dance. This is his fun, fast paced memoir.

The GOING THROUGH PAGES ROCK N ROLL BOOK CLUB, now going strong for a year plus, meets every other week to discuss a rock music oriented book a month. Participants read at home, and each meeting discussed one half of each book. BOOKS. BOOZE. BICKERING.

It's hosted by DJ BO. Contact him for more details.
