"Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant: A Memoir" by Curtis Chin. Chung’s Cantonese Cuisine was a safe haven in the 1980s.

It was a place where anyone - from the city’s first Black mayor to the local drag queens - could sit down for a warm, home-cooked meal. Here was where, beneath a bright-red awning and surrounded by his multigenerational family, filmmaker and activist Curtis Chin came of age; where he learned to embrace his identity as a gay ABC, or American-born Chinese; where he navigated the divided city’s spiraling misfortunes; and where—between helpings of almond boneless chicken, sweet-and-sour pork, and some of his own, less-savory culinary concoctions—he realized just how much he had to offer to the world, to his beloved family, and to himself. **2024 Michigan Notable Book**
