An Intimate Evening with Author Ann Y.K. Choi
Time & Location
About the Event
In an exclusive KPWA members-only event, please join Ann Y.K. Choi for a reading and discussion of her book, Kay's Lucky Coin Variety.
"A bittersweet coming-of-age debut novel set in the Korean community in Toronto in the 1980s. This haunting coming-of-age story, told through the eyes of a rebellious young girl, vividly captures the struggles of families caught between two cultures in the 1980s. Family secrets, a lost sister, forbidden loves, domestic assaults—Mary discovers as she grows up that life is much more complicated than she had ever imagined. Her secret passion for her English teacher is filled with problems and with the arrival of a promising Korean suitor, Joon-Ho, events escalate in ways that she could never have imagined, catching the entire family in a web of deceit and violence." This two-part event will provide an opportunity to delve into meaningful themes and questions with the author in an intimate setting:
