7:00 PM Chinese Tea Tasting Adventure Adventures by the Book™ is excited to partner with The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum for a Chinese Tea Tasting Adventure with the sensational New York Times bestselling author, Lisa See, where we will recreate a previous Adventure with Lisa which we are privileged to say helped inspire this latest, brilliant novel!

In her biggest seller, "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan," Lisa introduced the Yao people to her readers. Now, in her new novel, she shares the customs of another Chinese ethnic minority, the Akha, whose world, which has revolved around the ritual & routine of tea farming for generations, will soon change. Inspired by the performance of a Chinese tea ceremony, "The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane," tells the powerful story of a Chinese mother and her daughter separated by circumstances, culture and distance.

Join us for an evening at The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum, a non-profit organization whose mission is to collect, preserve and share the Chinese American experience & culture to educate their diverse community & visitors. Over appetizers and a tasting of traditional Chinese teas, we will be graced by the wonderful Lisa See, who will tell us about how she crafted her latest powerful novel and was inspired to interweave the classical culture of tea into the heart of her novel and her characters' destinies.

Your Adventure includes a hardcover copy of "The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane," appetizers, tea tasting, donation to The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum, author talk, book signing and the chance to meet the author up-close and personal in an intimate and authentic setting.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.

7:00 PM Stage: Red Velvet The Old Globe stages "Red Velvet," a stirring drama that transports audiences to the turbulent backstage world of London's Theatre Royal in the early 1800s.

Edmund Kean, the greatest actor of his generation, can't go on tonight as Othello, and his company is in disarray. A young American actor named Ira Aldridge arrives to step into the role—but no black man has ever played Othello on the English stage.

His groundbreaking performance upends stage tradition and changes the lives of everyone involved.

Lolita Chakrabarti's multi-award-winning play uncovers the fascinating true story of a pivotal figure in theater history. Visionary director Rachel Chavkin returns to The Old Globe with a stunningly theatrical production of a play that the London Telegraph called "informative, entertaining, and thought-provoking."

Admission/Cost: $34 - $98

Old Globe Theatre
