Out of Gobi: My Story of America and China with Weijian Shan

Hosted by Asia Society and Co-sponsored by CBSI

We are very excited to announce a CBSI Co-sponsored Asia Society event to feature our distinguished USF Alum Dr. Weijian Shan on August 20, 2019, at 11:00 am.

Weijian Shan's Out of the Gobi: My Story of China and America is a powerful memoir and commentary with the potential to reshape how Americans view China, and how the Chinese view life in America.

Shan, a former hard laborer who is now one of Asia's best-known financiers, is thoughtful, observant, eloquent, and brutally honest, making him well-positioned to tell the story of a life that is a microcosm of modern China, and of how, improbably, that life became intertwined with America. Out of the Gobi draws a vivid picture of raw human energy and the will to succeed against all odds.

11:00 AM       Weijian Shan Discussion on Out of the Gobi: My Story of China and America (Lunch Served)
12:45 PM       Book Signing
1:00 PM         Conclusion
