About this project

Support PAGE TURNER: Asian American Literary Festival on October 29, 2011 and choose from a collection of rewards that highlight the breadth and depth of Asian American talent.  Prizes include:  autograph books, coffee with Silicon Valley VCs, a custom-made Sudoku puzzle, lunch at Facebook's Palo Alto offices, a private five-star view of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, a manuscript review by one of Poets & Writers Magazine's Game Changing literary agents, a private Filipino dinner at a swanky Asian art gallery, and a private play workshopping by an Obie-award winning playwright! 

You'll be celebrating both the twentieth anniversary of the Asian American Writers' Workshop and our landmark literary festival. 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: Junot Diaz, Amitav Ghosh, Teju Cole, Aasif Mandvi, Siddhartha Deb, Hari Kunzru, and Jessica Hagedorn, who we are honoring with a lifetime achievement award. 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!
