LOVEBOAT, TAIPEI BOOK PRELAUNCH AND ALUMNI REUNION PARTY
Abigail Hing Wen’s anticipated debut novel Loveboat, Taipei (releases JAN 7) launches at a significant moment when Asian American storytelling in all forms is gaining ground in mainstream media. Inspired by Taiwan's actual cultural exchange program nicknamed "Loveboat," and the author an alum herself, Loveboat, Taipei is an immigrant girl’s coming-of-age story of navigating family complexities, discovering identity in all its facets, and finding love.
Abigail wrote this novel featuring a cast of over 30 different Asian American characters. Our hope is to reach the best-seller list at launch, forcing Hollywood to take notice and adapt this Asian American story onto the theatrical screen. Incidentally, her book has been one of the largest HarperCollins acquisitions in the past few years.
