CWIP Fall Kickoff

September 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

You're invited to Chicago Women in Publishing's annual Fall Kickoff event on Wednesday, September 20th to celebrate the beginning of our 2017/2018 year. CWIP is extremely pleased to have the widely recognized memoirist Jian Ping, also know as Jennifer Kwong, as our keynote speaker this year.

Jian Ping is the author of Mulberry Child: A Memoir of China (2008). It tells the story of her coming of age and her family's struggle during China’s Cultural Revolution. In 2011, the book was adapted into an award-winning documentary film, which was broadcasted nationally on PBS for three consecutive years.

Each attendee receives a drink ticket along with one raffle ticket to win a one-year CWIP membership or any of the many other prizes available. Food will also be provided. Additional raffle tickets will be on sale during the event until the drawing at 8:00 p.m.

If you have any questions regarding the event please contact programs@cwip.org.

The U.S. Bank Building at 190 S. LaSalle St. in Chicago is accessible by public transportation. While this building does not provide parking, discounted parking is available nearby through ParkWhiz or SpotHero.
