STOCKTON RECORD -- Today, the booth will host third-generation Stocktonian and Edison High graduate Dawn Mabalon, an associate professor of History at San Francisco State University and the author of “Little Manila is in the Heart: The Making of the Filipino/a American Community in Stockton, California.” Mabalon will sign copies of her 462-page illustrated volume, the first book ever written on the topic. It traces the mostly forgotten stories of the once-thriving Little Manila District downtown, home to the largest Filipino community in the country for most of the 20th century
