The Golden Venture in the News


The Golden Venture Tragedy: From hell at sea to the American Dream

In an article timed to the 15th anniversary of the Golden Venture grounding, the NY Daily News recounts the tragic voyage and offers a profile of Golden Venture passenger Michael Chen. Chen is one of the approximatley 30 Golden Venture passengers "paroled" by President Clinton in 1997 who have yet to achieve permanent legal status in the US.(6/8/2008)

GV Featured in New Book on Chinese Restaurants

Golden Venture passenger Michael Chen figures largely in a new book on Chinese restaurants, "The Fortune Cookie Chronicles, Adventures in the World of Chinese Food," by Jennifer 8. Lee, a staff reporter for the New York Times. Lee attended the April, 2006 press conference held by the Golden Venture passengers in New York and also joined us at a NYC photo shoot where all the GV passengers were gathered. Reviews have praised the book for placing the growth of Chinese restaurants around the country in the context of the recent history of Chinese immigration to the US. Lee traces the development of Chinese restaurants back to the earliest history of Chinese immigration to America in the 1840s and 50s. (3/3/08)

Reviews of the book have appeared in Forbes and Newsweek.
