"The Shakespeare of Status Anxiety... Dishy and delightful, filled with all sorts of bad behavior performed in couture. But as loose and fun and compulsively readable as they are, [Kevin] Kwan’s novels are also very clearly the work of someone who spends much of his social time paying extremely close attention."
The Atlantic

From the mind of Kevin Kwan, international bestselling author of the Crazy Rich Asians series, comes his newest novel Sex and Vanity, 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. Moving between summer playgrounds of privilege, peppered with decadent food and extravagant fashion, Sex and Vanity is a truly modern love story, a daring homage to A Room with a View, and a brilliantly funny comedy of manners set between two cultures. The film adaptation is already in progress. In conversation with Amy Tan, author of several books including The Joy Luck Club, The Bonesetter's Daughter, and the recent memoir Where the Past Begins.  FREE, $10-15 suggested donation

Registration is required for Zoom access. Spots are limited.
Event will also be livecasted on Facebook Live.
