Min Jin Lee - Pachinko
KL Pereira - A Dream Between Two Rivers
In conversation with Katie Eelman

Saturday Mar. 3rd 2:00 pm

This event will take place at the Coolidge Corner Public Library.

In Min Jin Lee’s gorgeous, sprawling National Book Award finalist, four generations of a poor Korean immigrant family fight to control their destiny in 20th-century Japan, exiled from a home they never knew. KL Pereira’s collection weaves elements of fairy tale, folklore, and myth into the lives of women, children, and immigrants. Free of normative ideas of gender, class, race, and sexuality, Pereira explores rebirth amidst darkness.
