Impromptu Discussion: Korean/Asian-American Movies and Books

  • 12/20/2018
  • 6:30 PM
  • Kimchi Kitchen, Cambridge MA

Registration is closed

Casually meet-up with others to talk about Asian/Asian American/Korean American/Adoptee related media (like books and films) that have come out recently in the past year or so that have made it pretty much to mainstream American audiences? 

It seems like there has been a surge in representation with Pachinko (book), The Leavers (book), Little Fires Everywhere (book), To All the Boys I've Loved Before (movie on Netflix), John Cho as the leading man in Searching (movie), and The Man in the High Castle (show with many Asian-American actors on Amazon), not to mention Crazy Rich Asians...
"Scissors, Paper, Stone" (book)
Sorry For Your Loss, a tv show 
Joanna Gaines’ cookbook (mom’s bulgoki recipe)
Kristin Kish’s cookbook (KAD)
Molly Yeh’s cookbook
Human Acts by Han Kang
