Reading and Talk by Kim, Young-ha and Shin, Kyung-sook
Two of Korea's most outstanding writers, Kim, Young-ha and Shin, Kyung-sook, will each talk about their writing and give a reading. Kim is the author of two novels that have been released in the US, I Have the Right to Destroy Myself (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2007) and Your Republic is Calling You (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010). Shin's novel, Please Look After Mom, which has sold over 1.5 million copies in Korean, will be released in the US by Knopf Doubleday next year. Coffee will be served between the two author's presentations. Please bring your own copies of the author's books, and they will be happy to sign them at the end of the program.
Book sales and signing after the reading.
This program is sponsored by the Nam Center for Korean Studies, the Korea Literature Translation Institute, and the University of Michigan Museum of Art.
