    Wednesday, August 3, 2022 at 3:30 PM until 5:00 PMEastern Daylight Time

    Book Focus with MFA Faculty, Kirstin Chen - Counterfeit

    Kirstin Chen’s Counterfeit has been one of the most anticipated novels of 2022 and landed immediately on the NYT Bestseller List. Swift, surprising, and sharply comic, Counterfeit is a stylish and feminist caper with a strong point of view and an axe to grind. Peering behind the curtain of the upscale designer storefronts and the Chinese factories where luxury goods are produced, Kirstin Chen interrogates the myth of the model minority through two unforgettable women determined to demand more from life.

    Join the Ashland University MFA faculty and guests for an event focusing on the processing of writing, agenting, editing and publishing of Counterfeit with author Kirstin Chen, her agent Michelle Brower (Founding Partner and Literary Agent at Trellis Literary Management), and the book’s editor Jessica Williams (Executive Editor at HarperCollins Publishers).

    Wednesday, August 3, 3:30-5:00 PM EST, via Zoom.
