• Inside the Red Mansion book party. 7:30 p.m. The book’s full title is Inside the Red Mansion: On the Trail of China's Most Wanted Man, and it’s written by a gentleman named Oliver August. The location of the party is supposed to be a secret except to RSVP'd guests who include Malcolm Gladwell, Fareed Zakaria, Arianna Huffington, and Moby but isn’t it obvious how to get there? Just follow Malcolm Gladwell around until he walks into a red mansion.
