Using his best-selling book, 1982, as a launching off point, Jian will share hilarious stories of his journey growing up as a reluctant outsider in suburban Toronto to becoming an award-winning, internationally renowned media personality.

After his talk, Jian will sign copies of his book in the Studio Theatre lobby. You can purchase 1982 at either of our two Theatre Store locations: across from the Festival Theatre or adjacent to the Avon.

Seating is limited! Buy tickets today!
