Reading Group: Pachinko

At the Reading Group in October we'll discuss Pachinko by Min Jin Lee.

Yeongdo, Korea, 1927. When 16-year-old Sunja falls pregnant by a married gangster, her family face ruin. But then a Christian minister offers her a chance of salvation: a new life in Japan as his wife. Following a man she barely knows to a hostile country in which she has no friends and no home, Sunja’s salvation is just the beginning of her story.

Chosen by the New York Times Book Review as one of the 10 Best Books of 2017, Pachinko is a powerful, moving novel about one of the 20th Century's forgotten stories. Reserve your copy here.
