The Hawke's Bay Branch of the Chinese Association of New Zealand invites you to the special launch of Chinese ANZACS by Alistair Kennedy and Turning Stone into Jade: The History of the Chinese Association by David Fung.

Chinese ANZACs: Australians of Chinese Descent in the Defence Forces 1885-1919 - Second Edition revised to include New Zealand-born Chinese of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force 1914-1919 is released by NZCA as part of First World War Centenary commemorations.

Turning Stone into Jade tells the story of one of New Zealand’s oldest Chinese community organisations. In its early incarnations, the NZCA offered kinship and a united voice for an often marginalised and fragile minority.

Written by David Fung, this book comprises an extensive range of records from the Association’s archives and other historical research, supplemented with photos, illustrations and contributions from its thirteen branches across the country.

Books will be for sale at $40 each
