On Feb. 1, Hwang will serve as the keynote speaker for the 12th annual Emerson-Wier Liberal Arts Symposium. His address is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in Te Ata Memorial Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Hwang is a Chinese-American playwright, described by The New York Times as “a true original” and by TIME Magazine as “the first important dramatist of American public life since Arthur Miller.” He is best known as the author of “M. Butterfly,” that enduring 1988 work, which won a Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, John Gassner Award and Outer Critics Circle Award, and was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. From 1994–2001, he served by appointment of President Bill Clinton on the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. In 2012 he received the Steinberg Award for playwriting, the largest monetary prize in the American theater. Hwang is currently the Chair of the American Theatre Wing.
