Description: In collaboration with the NASW-CA's Asian and Pacific Islander Social Work Council, the Social Justice Book Club will meet to discuss Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. A National Book Award Finalist and one of Roxanne Gay's favorite book of 2017, the book discusses the experiences of a Korean immigrant family in 20th-century Japan. "In 1930s Korea, an earnest young woman, abandoned by the lover who has gotten her pregnant, enters into a marriage of convenience that will take her to a new life in Japan. Thus begins Lee's luminous new novel PACHINKO--a powerful meditation on what immigrants sacrifice to achieve a home in the world. PACHINKO confirms Lee's place among our finest novelists." ― Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and This Is How You Lose Her. Please RSVP by Wednesday, June 26, so we could have an approximate headcount for the table.
