How Much of These Hills is Gold

RSVP HERE! 

In April, the Asian American Writers’ Workshop will celebrate the paperback launch of C Pam Zhang’s debut novel How Much of These Hills is Gold, which was longlisted for The Booker Prize, among other accolades. Since its publication last spring, this haunting, spare, and achingly beautiful novel has been widely praised for turning its unflinching gaze on the people and legends of the American West, illuminating the voices of those who are often forgotten in the margins of history. Joining Pam in conversation to celebrate her book is writer and comedian Karen Chee. 

*This event will be live-streamed on Zoom, and CART captions will be available. The first 100 RSVPs will receive access to the Zoom link via email. The event will also be live streamed on the Asian American Writers’ Workshop YouTube page for the greater public.*

Born in Beijing but mostly an artifact of the United States, C PAM ZHANG has lived in thirteen cities across four countries and is still looking for home. She’s been awarded support from Tin House, Bread Loaf, Aspen Words, and elsewhere, and currently lives in San Francisco. In 2020 her debut novel, How Much of These Hills is Gold, was longlisted for The Booker Prize.

KAREN CHEE is a comedian and writer for Late Night with Seth Meyers. She has also written for the Golden Globes, the New Yorker, and the New York Times, and she is currently working on a humor collection for Holt.
