An Evening with Eddie Huang
DJ set by SOSUPERSAM
Co-presented with the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center
Chef, food personality, bestselling author of Fresh Off the Boat, and inspiration behind the hit television show of the same name, Eddie Huang makes his ALOUD debut with a brash new memoir about love, meaning, and returning to your ancestral homeland. Double Cup Love takes readers on a cultural romp from Williamsburg dive bars to the skies of Mongolia, from Michelin-starred restaurants to street-side soup peddlers in Chengdu. Join us for a spirited evening as Fresh Off the Boat star, Constance Wu—who plays Eddie’s unforgettable mother—interviews Huang about family, food, and broken hearts. DJ SOSUPERSAM joins for a pre-show set at 7 PM.
