The road to the American Dream is filled with challenges. For Tom Hom, born the Year of the Rabbit, his journey took him to become the first minority American elected to the San Diego City Council, and to a seat on the California State Assembly.
A “living legend” in San Diego, according to UT San Diego, Tom’s story is that of “the American immigrant family’s work-hard-and-make-goodstory of success; the young politician’s story of victory over conventional wisdom, and the story of a business, built from the bottom up with the usual triumphs and let-downs.” Come join us as Tom recounts his remarkable journey.
Book signing to follow.
