Annelise Heinz

A Chi­nese Game and the Mak­ing of Mod­ern Amer­i­can Culture
(Oxford University Press, 2021)

Drawing on photographs, advertising, popular media and dozens of oral histories, Heinz brings to life the history of mahjong as it traveled from China to the U.S. and caught on with Hollywood starlets, high society, middle-class housewives, and immigrants alike to become a quintessentially American game. Heinz is an assistant professor of history at the University of Oregon. Watch with your Mahj group!

Generously underwritten by Marvin and Carolyn Miller Family Foundation

Moderated by Ruth Sternberg – Journalist, RJBF Committee Member
