7 p.m. Crazy Rich Asians: Kevin Kwan in Conversation by Scripps Presents at Garrison Theater, Scripps College
Last summer, Crazy Rich Asians made headlines by featuring the first all-Asian cast in a major Hollywood film in more than 20 years. Kevin Kwan is the literary sensation whose vivid storytelling was the inspiration for the box office smash- hit. The Singapore-born and Texas-raised author drew on his experiences to create a compulsively readable trilogy that includes Crazy Rich Asians, China Rich Girlfriend, and Rich People Problems. He visits to talk about the immigrant experience, literature, and his forthcoming foray into television.
This program is presented in partnership with KSPC Radio and the Pomona College Museum of Art and made possible by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton ’42 Fund.
