Author Carolyn See once said, “When I started to write, I was relatively old, and lived in California. So I was the wrong sex, wrong age, wrong coast. Luckily, I was too ignorant to know it.” See wrote many books, including "Dreaming: Hard Luck and Good Times in America," her memoir, and the novels "There Will Never Be Another You" and "Golden Days." She's also the mother of bestselling author Lisa See, who writes about the Chinese-American experience.

Carolyn See died July 13; Lisa invited us to her memorial, which was held Thursday at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica and featured 19 speakers, including Lisa, See's grandkids, and author Susan Straight. Listen to their touching eulogies with the audio player.
