NPR correspondent Aarti Shahani has a new memoir - in it, the story of when her family brought her from India to the United States. Her father was a scholar who could speak six languages, but her parents struggled to make ends meet in New York City. She talks to Steve Inskeep about her new book. Plus, China celebrates 70 years of the People's Republic on the next Morning Edition from NPR News.

Morning Edition from NPR News airs weekday mornings from 6:00 am - 9:00 am on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Download the FREE KRCB App @ iTunes & Google Play!
