Talking Books: Asian American Authors in Conversation—Pitchaya Sudbanthad and his novel, Bangkok Wakes to Rain

Wednesday, March 17, 2021
6 – 7PM

Please join us for a virtual book talk with Pitchaya Sudbanthad. We will discuss his novel, Bangkok Wakes to Rain, which is available in print and electronic formats at NYPL.

“[A] writer born in Thailand and now living in New York creates a portrait of Bangkok that sweeps across a century and a teeming cast of characters yet shines with exquisite detail. …This breathtakingly lovely novel is an accomplished debut, beautifully crafted and rich with history rendered in the most human terms.” — Kirkus Reviews, December 1, 2018 (Starred Review).

This event is part of the Talking Books: Asian American Authors in Conversation series co-sponsored by Chatham Square Library of NYPL and the Asian American Writer’s Workshop.
