The Gray Bird Sings: The Extraordinary Life of Betty Kwan Chinn

A Conversation with author Dr. Karen M. Price and activist Betty Kwan Chinn

Betty Chinn worked tirelessly to establish homeless shelters and to feed thousands in the Humboldt community. As a child, she was separated from her family and exposed to the worst of humanity. Despite these monstrous conditions, she journeyed from fear to forgiveness and became a beacon of hope for those most vulnerable and an inspiration for all. 

Come meet Betty Kwan Chinn.


Are you a 2023 Cal Poly Humboldt author? Faculty, staff, students, emeriti, and alumni, please let us know about your publications by completing the Authors Recognition Form. We want to honor and celebrate your accomplishment. 

The Cal Poly Humboldt Authors Hall is a growing collection of books, CDs, and DVDs of scholarship and creative work from Cal Poly Humboldt faculty, emeriti faculty, staff, student, and alumni authors. The goals of the Cal Poly Humboldt Authors Hall are to celebrate Cal Poly Humboldt authors, share the value of their scholarly and creative works with the University and wider community, and to promote authorship and scholarly communications. 

We hope to see you there, and thank you for sharing your creative and scholarly works. We are honored to house them in the Cal Poly Humboldt Authors Hall in the Library.
