• 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.
