About this project
Support PAGE TURNER: the Asian American Literary Festival on November 7, and choose rewards from a showcase of Asian American talent and accomplishment: coffees with Silicon Valley venture capitalists, custom-drawn comics, scripts from "The Office" and "30 Rock," cookbooks, walking tours of New York City Chinatown street food, CDs, movies, literary consultations with an agent from William Morris Endeavor, lessons from a national Sukodu champion, and more. Scroll down the side and see what of the amazing line-up tickles your fancy.
The only event of its kind, PAGE TURNER celebrates the stories and ideas of the Asian American literary community. We invite readers and writers of all backgrounds to come hear the brightest voices of American writing, politics and comedy: Ha Jin, Richard Price, Susan Choi, Monica Youn, Jennifer 8 Lee, Tao Lin, Tim Wu, Hari Kunzru, Das Racist, Hari Kondabolu, and nearly thirty other writers. We’re like the TED of Asian American literature, but with more booze and better battle rhymes!
Your investment will determine how big and ambitious we can make the celebration, how many underrepresented writers we can bring to the center of American letters this year. By creating an Asian American intellectual space that does not currently exist, PAGE TURNER shows that Asian American literature is alive. By committing to PAGE TURNER, you will send a message that says that you believe in the Pulitzer Prize winners of the future--and that you believe in nurturing the writers who will tell our childrens’ story and that of their children. Help inspire future generations and ensure that they too will know that their stories matter and deserve to be told. Visit http://www.pageturnerfest.org and http://www.aaww.org for more information.
[New rewards are added all the time!]
