Event Description

Join us to discuss Yellowface by R. F. Kuang. The story follows a young white author who steals the manuscript of her dead Asian friend, finishes it, and publishes it as her own. The highly immersive satirical novel takes us on a thrilling journey through the eyes of a writer who struggles to make her own way in the cut-throat world of publishing. With its totally immersive first-person voice, Yellowface grapples with questions of diversity, racism, and cultural appropriation, as well as the terrifying alienation of social media. R.F. Kuang’s novel is timely, razor-sharp, and eminently readable.
