PEN America Virtual Authors’ Evening with Kevin Kwan
Date: Tuesday, November 17, 2020
Time: 7:00pm ET / 4:00pm PT
Donation to Attend: $125 per ticket
Join us for an exciting conversation with best-selling author Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians, to discuss his new book Sex and Vanity, and the importance of telling Asian American stories, both on the page and on the screen.
Kevin Kwan is the author of Crazy Rich Asians, the international bestselling novel that has been translated into more than 30 languages. Its sequel, China Rich Girlfriend, was released in 2015, and Rich People Problems, the final book in the trilogy, followed in 2017. For several weeks in 2018, the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy commanded the top three positions of the New York Times bestseller list – an almost unprecedented single-author trifecta, and the film adaptation of Crazy Rich Asians became Hollywood’s highest grossing romantic comedy in over a decade. In 2018, Kevin was named by Time Magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. His newest book, Sex and Vanity, is a glittering tale of a young woman who finds herself torn between two men: the WASPY fiancé of her family’s dreams and George Zao, the man she is desperately trying to avoid falling in love with.
