Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2016

In Collaboration with Brazos Bookstore

An unforgettable portrait of individuals who hope, struggle, and grow along a single street cutting through the heart of China’s most exhilarating metropolis, from one of the most acclaimed broadcast journalists reporting on China today.

Modern Shanghai is a global city in the midst of a renaissance, where dreamers arrive each day to partake in a mad torrent of capital, ideas, and opportunity. Marketplace’s Rob Schmitz is one of them. Schmitz will provide a look at a dynamically modernizing Shanghai and the chase of the Chinese Dream. Following the program, Schmitz will visit with guests and sign books. Street of Eternal Happiness is available for purchase from Brazos Bookstore.
