Arts & Letters Live: Kevin Kwan

May 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$50 – $55

 

In conversation with Cornelia Guest

Kevin Kwan, the iconic author of the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy, presents Lies and Weddings, an outrageous comedy about what happens when a forbidden affair erupts volcanically amid a decadent tropical wedding.

Rufus Leung Gresham has a problem: the legendary Gresham Trust has been depleted by decades of profligate spending, and behind the glamorous façade lies a gargantuan mountain of debt. The only solution, put forth by Rufus’s scheming mother, is for Rufus to attend his sister’s wedding at a luxury eco-resort and seduce a woman with money.

From the black sand beaches of Hawaii to the skies of Marrakech, from the glitzy bachelor pads of Los Angeles to the inner sanctums of England’s oldest family estates, Kwan unfurls a hilarious and thrillingly plotted story of love, money, murder, sex, and the lies we tell about them all.

Kevin Kwan has been named by Time magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. The film adaptation of Crazy Rich Asians became Hollywood’s highest grossing romantic comedy in over a decade.

All ticket types include a copy of Lies and Weddings. 

Books will be shipped to virtual ticket holders after the event date.
