YMM produced the promotional materials for a staged reading of 10,000 Steps: One Woman's Insistence on the American Dream, presented June 3, 2017 at the Fort Mason Chapel as part of the San Francisco International Arts Festival. The one-woman play is based on the life of Connie King, who was born Yuet-Ho Tom in Isleton, California in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, and spent most of her life in the nearby town of Locke.
10,000 Steps was written by the late Jeff Gillenkirk, co-founder of Your Message Media. Jeff’s nonfiction book co-authored with James Motlow, "Bitter Melon: Inside America's Last Rural All-Chinese Town," won the Commonwealth Club's Silver Medal award for best California history. It is now in its 6th printing.
