“A well-crafted tale of a person who forges ahead amid heartbreak and war.”–Kirkus Reviews
Wondra Chang will read from her new book Sonju, followed by an audience Q&A. Moderated by Alexandra van de Kamp, Gemini Ink’s Executive Director.
Sonju opens on a chilly day in November 1946 in Seoul, Korea. Japan has ended its thirty-five-year occupation of Korea after the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The American military has become the new occupier. The story’s protagonist, Sonju, is on the way to her best friend’s house when she sees two Americans in military uniforms walking ahead of her, and her heart stirs. So begins the story that spans over two decades.
Order Sonju from Madville Publishing or at online retailers Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Bookshop.org, Kobo.
