Join H4A NYC with Susan Lieu (AB '07) featuring her memoir - The Manicurist's Daughter. LA Times called The Manicurist’s Daughter one of the 6 Books for Lunar New Year profiling Susan as “a dynamo, spouting humor, profanity and wisdom in the same breath.” And Elle Magazine—the same one Susan used to straighten in her mother’s nail salon—just named her memoir as one of the Best Nonfiction and Most Anticipated Books of 2024.

An emotionally raw memoir about the crumbling of the American Dream and a daughter of refugees who searches for answers after her mother dies during plastic surgery. The Manicurist’s Daughter is much more than a memoir about grief, trauma, and body image. It is a story of fierce determination, strength in shared culture, and finding your place in the world. For more information on the book, please check out the registration link.
