Peter Jamero talks with Dawn Bohulano Mabalon at a July 2013 book reading in Stockton. He is quoted in Mabalon’s new book about Stockton’s Little Manila. Next to him is his sister, Luna Jamero, who also has several passages and quotes in the book.

A new book, “Little Manila Is In The Heart: The Making of the Filipina/o American Community in Stockton, California,” was recently released. The author, Dawn Bohulano Mabalon, has been at several book readings recently, including in California and Washington. Dawn posted the above photo and included the following on her Facebook:  ”Pete Jamero… historian and author. I was telling him how much I loved being able to quote from his autobiography, Growing Up Brown.”
