Korean Lunch and Conversation – 
The Defectors’ Dilemma: Minority Life in South Korea
Saturday, July 23 at 2:00PM
Prior to the 4PM reading of Wild Goose Dreams

A conversation with Hannah B. Michell, internationally acclaimed scholar and novelist, and UC Berkeley lecturer on Korean Pop Culture and Asian American Cinema. Prior to the 4PM reading of Wild Goose Dreams, Ms. Michell will present her research on contemporary South Korean family life and structure in relationship to its minorities: defectors, mixed-race individuals and those separated by war. In a culture which idealized the multi-generational family unit, where do those fragmented families belong? 

Delicious box lunches provided by foodie fave Oakland Korean fusion restaurant FuseBOX. (Lunch is $10.00 - order in advance by email on event registration).
