Formosa Moon Book Launch Party @ Red Room, Taipei Taiwan


Join the authors of Formosa Moon for a reading, live reenactments, book signing, food, drinks, puppetry and more.

Formosa Moon Book Launch Party @ Red Room, Taipei Taiwan
Taipei, Taiwan, October 10, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Joshua Samuel Brown (Vignettes of Taiwan, Lonely Planet Taiwan) and Stephanie Huffman cordially invite you to a book launch party for their latest book, Formosa Moon, at the Red Room.

Published by Things Asian Press, Formosa Moon is a romantic and geeky cultural journey around Taiwan undertaken by a couple comprised of a seasoned guidebook writer intimately familiar with Taiwan and a first-time visitor who agreed to leave everything behind and relocate to Taiwan sight unseen.

Along the way the couple lose themselves in Taoist temples, feast on street food and explore Taiwan’s breathtaking scenery while also engaging in less typical expatriate activities including filming a clandestine puppet show in a hijacked hotel lobby, accidentally taking up chicken farming in their residential Taipei neighborhood, and allowing themselves to be briefly sucked into a local religious cult...all in the name of cultural immersion.

Part travelogue, part guidebook, part memoir, Formosa Moon is a dual-voice narrative offering practical travel information about this young and vibrant democracy while commenting hilariously on their often unusual travel experiences around the country, ultimately inspiring readers to explore Taiwan on a deeper level.

Admission is free, and a good time is guaranteed.

What: Formosa Moon Launch Party
When: October 27, 2018 - 18:00 - 20:00 (6pm-10pm)
Where: The Red Room, Jianguo S. Rd. Sec.1 #177, Taipei, Taiwan

The Red Room is an ever-expanding community exploring and extending the boundaries between audience and performer through events centered around the spoken word, music, visual arts, theater, and family friendly activities, Red Room is a community hub where participants can explore their passion with other artists and creatives.
