Food, Family & Feelings with Susan Lieu

Food, Family & Feelings with Susan Lieu

April 7, 2024

Join the Wing Luke Museum for a special in-person conversation with Susan Lieu as she visits the Wing Luke Museum to talk about her debut memoir, "The Manicurist's Daughter."

Susan Lieu is a Vietnamese-American author, playwright, and performer who tells stories that refuse to be forgotten. A daughter of nail salon workers, she took her autobiographical solo theatre show 140 LBS: How Beauty Killed My Mother on a 10-city national tour with sold out premieres and accolades from L.A. Times, NPR, and American Theatre.

Eight months pregnant, she premiered her sequel Over 140 LBS as the headliner for ACT Theatre’s SoloFest. Within one year she held 60 performances to over 7,000 people.

Her award-winning work has been featured at Bumbershoot, Wing Luke Museum, The Moth Mainstage, On The Boards, The World Economic Forum, RISK!, CAATA ConFest, Viet Film Fest, and she has spoken at more than a dozen universities around the country.

Susan will be available to autograph books at the end of this talk. Copies of her book will be available for sale via our Museum Marketplace.
