Come join fellow alumni at Paris Bakery in Westwood for our next book club event to discuss Pachinko by Min Jin Lee, a saga about four generations of a poor Korean immigrant family's fight to control their destiny in 20th-century Japan. PACHINKO follows one Korean family through the generations, beginning in early 1900s Korea with Sunja, the prized daughter of a poor yet proud family, whose unplanned pregnancy threatens to shame them all. Deserted by her lover, Sunja is saved when a young tubercular minister offers to marry and bring her to Japan.
Please register by Friday, May 31.
