Christopher Corbett in the Idaho Statesman

Christopher Corbett was a guest speaker in Boise, Idaho on Saturday, February 5, at the observance of the Chinese Lunar New Year organized by Chinese associations in the state capital. Idaho had one of the largest populations of Chinese workers in the 19th century and much of Corbett’s book, “The Poker Bride: The First Chinese in the Wild West,” (Atlantic Monthly) is set there.
