DESCRIPTION

In this conversation, New York Times bestselling author Min Jin Lee speaks about her novel, Pachinko, a sprawling historical saga that follows four generations of a Korean immigrant family in 20th century Japan. Expanding on questions of family and identity from her novel as well as her own experiences as an Asian-American, she will examine the intricacies of being a perceived outsider and the power of fiction in bridging cultures.

This session is made possible with the assistance of the U.S. Embassy.
