The Korean Cultural Centre (KCC) Australia presents a Korean Book Club.
The Book Club in September will read The Calligrapher’s Daughter, a sweeping debut novel by Korean-American novelist Eugenia Kim.
In early-twentieth-century Korea, Najin Han, the privileged daughter of a calligrapher, longs to choose her own destiny, though her country-newly occupied by Japan is crumbling, and her family, led by her stern father, is facing difficulties that seem insurmountable. Narrowly escaping an arranged marriage, Najin takes up a new role as a companion to a young princess. But the king is soon assassinated, and the centuries-old dynastic culture comes to its end.
Join Eugenia Kim and Suzanne Leal, a Sydney-based best-selling author, for a discussion about the Najin’s compelling story inspired by the author’s mother’s life.
Free admission, bookings are essential. BOOK NOW.
Participants will have a chance to win 1 of 10 copies of the book.
