Described by NPR as "a breathless, high-speed romp through the lives of a group of megarich Asians,” Crazy Rich Asians presents opportunities for discussions of family, diaspora culture, wealth, class, and representation. Join us for a lively discussion!
In celebration of National Library Week (April 7-14) we invite you to submit a bookish self-portrait. Your #berkeleybookface will be featured on the Berkeley Public Library Instagram feed, and you could win a $25 gift certificate from Pegasus Books!
