Meet “Good Chinese Wife” Author Susan Blumberg-Kason in Hong Kong!

If you’re based in Asia and itching to meet Susan Blumberg-Kason, author of Good Chinese Wife (an AMWF memoir you really don’t want to miss — see my interview with her from this past July), here’s your chance in October 2014. Come on down to Hong Kong for one of these special events!

Monday, October 13, 7:45pm – Hong Kong Jewish Community Center (Reading and Signing)

Everyone is welcome to attend this event, but due to tight security you MUST be on the guest list in order to enter. Contact Erica Lyons at [email protected] to get your name on the list. Bring your ID the night of the event to get in, plus a cover charge (HK$65 for JCC members, HK$100 for non-JCC members) that includes dessert and a drink. Books will be for sale.

Tuesday, October 14, 6:30pm – Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents Club (Talk)

Susan will be speaking to the Hong Kong Women in Publishing Society (WiPS) about memoir writing, but anyone can attend this event. There will be a fee to get in (HK$200 for non-WiPS members and HKD$100 for WiPS members). Appetizers will be served and books will be for sale here, too.

Thursday, October 16, 6:30pm – Bookazine in Exchange Square (How Does One Dress To Buy Dragonfruit? Launch Party)

If you can’t make the previous two events, you can still meet Susan at this launch party for the anthology How Does One Dress to Buy Dragonfruit? (which includes her essay, as well as mine!). There will be wine, dragonfruit and giveaways, including a chance to win your very own copy of Good Chinese Wife. All are welcome.

 UPDATE: Added in correct fees for the Hong Kong WiPS event.

    I read this book in the summer and I found that my eyes were just glued to the book. There were some very funny moments which I like a lot such as Susan’s naughty behavior with the H.K. men. There were other times when I cried reading how Cai mentally gave her the silent treatment and scolded her. I think this should be one of the “best sellers” of the year.

    I am now waiting for the long over due book of Jocelyn’s memoirs and I just cannot wait any longer.

      Ah, Fred, I promise the book is coming. I’m working on it every day as I write this!

    @ Jocelyn.

    Any estimated time when it will come out? I am certain that it will be a good seller and will make you and your hubby filthy rich. I will be glad to contribute to your wealth by buying the book when it comes out.

      Aw, thanks for your fervent support!

      Once I’m finished with this round of revisions, I’m going to go through an agent who would then help me sell the manuscript to a publisher. So there are still some steps ahead of me (getting an agent, selling the manuscript) that I need to get through. But with people like you behind me, I’m confident I’ll get there! 😉
