“Looking East” authors Hong Shen and Margo Taft Stever

Late last month, UC Libraries celebrated the publication of the new English-language edition of Looking East: William Howard Taft and the 1905 U.S. Diplomatic Mission to Asia, The Photographs of Harry Fowler Woods.  This book, co-authored by Margo Taft Stever, James Taft Stever and Hong Shen, spotlights a little known but important historical event in U.S.-Asian relations.  The publication was commemorated with a book signing at Joseph-Beth Booksellers, as well as a donor event hosted by the library, which took place on the 400 level of Langsam Library.  These events provided UC Libraries with the opportunity to connect with the broader donor community, while celebrating an accomplishment three years in the making.
