asian american writers' workshop presents matchmaker

Hey, New York City. Looking for love? Here's something fun to do this weekend... Our friends at the Asian American Writers' invite you to their speed dating event, with author Kavita Ramdya and stand-up comedian Jen Kwok. Come on, you're intrigued, and it could be fun. Here are the details:



The Asian American Writers' Workshop
16 W. 32nd Street, Ste 10A
New York, NY 10001

Tired of making eyes at readings and not approaching the hottie next to you? Wondering how you can meet people that’ll compliment your bookcase? Interested in hearing more about love in Asian America? Keep it in the family and let the Workshop help you find the one at our first ever speed dating event. The Asian American Writers' Workshop presents MATCHMAKER, a special event about how we meet, mingle, and marry in Asian America. You don't have to be Asian American to attend!

Kavita Ramdya, author of Bollywood Weddings: Dating, Engagement, and Marriage in Hindu America, discusses how second-generation Indian Americans get hitched, a tricky negotiation involving arranged meeting, Mom and Dad, and, of course, lots of dancing. The event will be hosted by stand-up comedian Jen Kwok, the hilarious mastermind behind Date an Asian, her self-described comic ode to "the awesomeness of dating an asian guy." You will receive the following premiums:

- A month's worth of dates squeezed into one night as you move table to table closer to the one
- Finger foods to keep the attention where it counts
- A signature Workshop cocktail
- A horoscope reading to predict your compatibility
A month's worth of dates squeezed into one night? Madness! For more information about the event, and to RSVP and purchase your ticket, go here. You can also renew or purchase a membership to the Asian American Writers' Workshop and get over 30% knocked off the ticket price.
