Nodutdol is proud to co-sponsor AAWW’s June 22 event below:
Asian American Writer’s Workshop presents:
Love and Korean Democracy— with Jimin Han, Yoojin Grace Wuertz, & E. Tammy Kim
AAWW is celebrating two Korean American novelists whose new novels interrogate 1970s and 1980s Korean politics: Jimin Han and Yoojin Grace Wuertz, both born in Seoul. Both books follow university students, whether in the US and in Seoul, as they fall in love, build friendships, and understand how they relate to the turbulent changes in South Korean society. President Park Chung-hee’s 1970s authoritarian industrialization lays in the background of Wuertz’s novel, while Han’s flashes back to the student protests that helped inculcate Korean democracy. Moderated by former AAWW Open City Fellow E. Tammy Kim of The New Yorker editorial staff.
The event will be on AAWWTV, livestreamed on Facebook. We debuted our livestream earlier this year with our Maxine Hong Kingston event with 8k+ views!
