National Book Store brings international bestselling author Kevin Kwan to Cebu for a book signing event on August 27, 2017, at 2 PM in the City Wing of SM Seaside City Cebu. Kwan is currently promoting his latest book ‘Rich People Problems’.
Kevin Kwan and the ‘Rich People Problems’ novel
When Nicholas Young hears that his grandmother, Su Yi, is on her deathbed, he rushes to be by her bedside—but he’s not alone. The entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe to stake the claim on their matriarch’s massive fortune.
With each family member vying to inherit Tyersall Park—a trophy estate on 64 prime acres in the heart of Singapore—Nicholas’s childhood home turns into a hotbed of speculation and sabotage.
Kwan is the man behind ‘Crazy Rich Asians’, which is now being adapted into a feature film by Ivanhoe Pictures and Color Force, the producers of ‘The Hunger Games’ movies. Its sequel ‘China Rich Girlfriend’ was described by People Magazine as “a field guide to Asia’s uber wealthy echelon and comic satire at its best.”
Kwan was born and raised in Singapore, where he attended Anglo-Chinese School. After obtaining his first degree in creative writing from the University of Houston, Kwan moved to Manhattan to pursue a BFA at Parsons School of Design. Kwan currently resides in Manhattan.
