SAN DIEGO – Tom Hom, the first minority elected to San Diego City Council in 1963, will be hosting a book signing at Warwick’s La Jolla on Sept. 10, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. to highlight his memoir titled “Rabbit on a Bumpy Road.”
Tom Hom is a pioneer who made San Diego history in 1963 by becoming the first minority ever elected to the San Diego City Council; he later won a seat to the California State Assembly. Best known for helping to transform San Diego’s skid row into the vibrant Gaslamp Quarter Historic District that it is today, he has also led efforts to establish the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum. Today, Hom continues to be an influential civic, business and community leader, and an inspiration to every generation.
Today, his newest venture, his memoir “Rabbit on a Bumpy Road: A Story of Courage and Endurance” recaps his efforts in meeting life’s challenges to achieve The American Dream. His memoir is an insightful journey and offers words of wisdom that are an encouragement to all who believe in the future of America.
Hom turned 87 this year, and he said people often remark about his good health and vitality. In his memoir, he even includes a recipe for a health tonic he takes twice a day: a teaspoon of honey and two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar.
“I’ve been taking this since I was 35, and I still do it today,” he said.
Hom will share his journey on Sept. 10, 2014 at 7:30 pm at Warwick’s, 7812 Girard Avenue La Jolla, CA 92037. This event is open and free to the public. For more information about the event, please visit www.warwick.com, or call the Warwick’s Book Dept. at (858) 454-0347.
