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.
