Bio/Memoir Book Club: Read 'Crying in H Mart' by Michelle Zauner *For Adults
Wednesday, January 18, 2023
For this month's Biography/Memoir Book Club we'll be discussing "Crying in H Mart" by Michelle Zauner.
Join the conversation as we discuss Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner, "a New York Times Bestselling memoir about family, food, grief, love, and growing up Korean American."
"With humor and heart, Michelle Zauner tells of growing up one of the few Asian American kids at her school in Eugene, Oregon; of struggling with her mother's high expectations of her; of a painful adolescence; of treasured months spent in her grandmother's tiny apartment in Seoul, where she and her mother would bond, late at night, over heaping plates of food.
It was her mother's diagnosis of terminal cancer, when Michelle was twenty-five, that forced a reckoning with her identity and brought her to reclaim the gifts of taste, language, and history her mother had given her. Rich with intimate anecdotes that will resonate widely, and complete with family photos, Crying in H Mart is a book to cherish, share, and reread."
We'll have copies of the book at the library for you to borrow or you can order it from our online catalog.
