The authors – Kim Ae-ran, Chang Kang-myoung and Kim Min-jung – will answer questions, with interpretations into English. This will be followed by a question and answer session with the audience.
The event is part of a regular series organized with Asia Publishers, which has included the authors in their K-Fiction series of novellas. The works are Kim Ae-ran’s “Where Would You Like to Go?” about a woman who decides to stay in her cousin’s empty house in Scotland after her husband suddenly dies in an accident; Chang Kang-myoung’s “Fired,” about life as an ordinary worker in Korea’s difficult labor market; and Kim Min-jung’s “The World’s Most Expensive Novel.”
The books will be available for purchase at the event, as well as new translations of their other work. An autograph session will take place after the event for those who wish to get their books signed by the authors.
Moderating the event will be journalist and broadcaster Colin Marshall, who runs the Los Angeles Review of Books’ Korea blog.
The event runs on April 2 from 4-6 p.m. at the Haechi Hall in Seoul Global Cultural Center. Admission is free.
