‘What do you illegals have to gripe about?’: Author Qian Julie Wang says she faced racism at book event


New York Times bestselling author Qian Julie Wang recently shared on social media that a woman called her an “illegal” and told her she was “lucky to be in America” during a book event in Larchmont, New York, on Friday.

What happened: Sharing the incident on social media last week, Wang said she was heartbroken by what she experienced at a women’s association book event that she and two other authors – a white man and a white woman – had recently attended.
