"Beyond the Bookshelf" Book Club
Wednesday - February 21, 2024
6:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Join us this month as we discuss the riveting and intimate memoir Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner. Stop by the library to pick up a copy or check out Libby for a digital version. New members are always welcome!
"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 particular, 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.
As she grew up, moving to the East Coast for college, finding work in the restaurant industry, and performing gigs with her fledgling band—and meeting the man who would become her husband—her Koreanness began to feel ever more distant, even as she found the life she wanted to live. 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."
