Sex & Vanity: Kevin Kwan in Conversation with Doretta Lau

Sunday, Oct 25
Live on Zoom

Over a decade in the making, Sex & Vanity is fiction rockstar Kevin Kwan’s newest trilogy, set in the world’s most glamorous fashion capitals: New York, London and Paris. Author of the global megahit and major motion picture Crazy Rich Asians, Kwan brings his signature flare for material opulence and messy romantic entanglements, from Long Island all the way to the Tyrrhenian Sea. In an unforgettable conversation with author Doretta Lau, Kwan will speak to his new opus and romcom of manners, which pays homage to E.M. Forester’s A Room with a View. This is an event you won’t want to miss!

DORETTA LAU is the author of the short story collection How Does a Single Blade of Grass Thank the Sun? and the poetry chapbook Cause and Effect. She is currently writing a comedic novel about an inept company struggling to open a theme park about death, and an essay collection about navigating volcanoes, illness, and other enormities on the worst timeline.
