Book Reading with Krys Lee, author of Drifting House

  • 04/06/2012
  • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
  • Cambridge Community Center, Cambridge MA
We're very excited to announce that on Friday, April 6, BKA will be hosting author Krys Lee for a special book reading from her highly-acclaimed debut short story collection, Drifting House.

Krys is Korean-American, born in Seoul and raised in the US, and has been interested in the Korean-American diaspora and North Korean issues. The Sunday Times wrote of her stories in Drifting House, “Set in both America and Korea, these are subtle, haunting stories that explore the lives of people caught between two cu...ltures.”

Drifting House has been getting lots of rave reviews. You can find many of them on her website (http://kryslee.com/ press.shtml), but here are a couple quotes:

“Affecting stories...Lee writes with a clarity and simplicity of style that discloses deep and conflicting emotions about cultural identity.” undefinedKirkus Reviews (starred review)
"...a book of unforgettable stories, each one building on the other to create a complex, moving portrait of contemporary Korea and its diaspora." undefinedSarah Shun–lien Bynum, National Book Award finalist

You can find more information about Krys Lee and Drifting House at http://kryslee.com/.

The reading will start at 7 pm at the Cambridge Community Center, a 8 minute walk west of Central Square. After the reading and discussion we plan to take Krys out for drinks afterwards! Krys is a good friend of our own BKA member Katherine Lee, and she is fitting this event with BKA into her national book tour. Friends, family, and anyone who is interested in fiction are welcome!

Please RSVP by emailing: eventscoordinator@bkadoptee.org.

We are very excited to host Krys, and we hope you can join us for this event!
