Vanessa Hua with Oscar Villalon / Launch for Forbidden City: A Novel

Wednesday, May 11, 2022 - 7:00pm

Booksmith is thrilled to host another launch event with Vanessa Hua, for her novel Forbidden City. We've had the pleasure of hosting memorable events for her first two books and hope you can join us for what is sure to be a fun evening. She'll be in conversation with Zyzzyva's managing editor, the one and only Oscar Villalon

*** PLEASE NOTE: advanced sales for this event have ended. We have some seats remaining, which will go on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors are at 7pm PDT. Please note all of the following:

Please note:
> Due to demand, we have moved this event to Urban School, 1563 Page Street, San Francisco.
> Safety: ID and proof of full vaccination, including booster, will be required at the door. Masks will be required throughout the duration of the event, capacity will be limited to allow indoor distancing, and we'll have extra ventilation in place. 
Because we’re limiting capacity, we can't guarantee we'll have space for walk-ins. The best way to ensure you’ll get a seat is to order the Book + Seat ticket through this link. Our free RSVPs for this event have all been reserved, but there are still seats available via Book + Seat tickets; if we do not sell out before the event, any remaining tickets will be released on a first-come, first-served basis with no guarantee of admission.

> We are happy to offer *signed* copies of Forbidden City: order a Book + Seat ticket bundle if you'd like to pick up a signed copy at the event, or order here if you just want a signed copy.
> If we feel it is not safe to gather, as the event gets closer, we will pivot to a virtual event and your registration will remain valid.
