Join us in a virtual fireside AMA with Abigail Hing Wen where she unpacks navigating all three facets of life as she makes waves as a creative public figure in bringing diverse stories to mainstream media with her new debut novel, “Loveboat, Taipei”. Released in January, the book has hit the NY Times Best Seller list and is optioned for film in Hollywood by ACE Entertainment (“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”). Hear about the journey of writing, working with book publishers, and making difficult decisions on what makes the final book cover.

◼️About “Loveboat, Taipei”

“Loveboat, Taipei” is a young adult Crazy Rich Asians meets a Jane Austen comedy of manners, inspired by the actual cultural exchange program in Taipei attended by many Asian-American teens since the 1960s. The romp is woven through with an immigrant girl’s coming-of-age story, of navigating family complexities, discovering identity in all its facets and finding love.

The book was one of HarperCollins’ largest acquisitions over the past few years and has been optioned for film in Hollywood by ACE Entertainment (“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”). It is a Barnes and Noble Young Adult Book Club pick and, along with Abigail, has been featured in print and television, including Entertainment Weekly, Bloomberg, South China Morning Post and The World Journal, among others.


Loveboat Taipei is partnering with TACL, TAP, ITASA, GLO, Anchor Taiwan, and Crushing the Myth to showcase the story of how Abigail balances her life as a former leader, executive in AI and VC in Silicon Valley, a writer, and a mom.
