Grace M. Cho & Sun Yung Shin

Live via Zoom:
Tuesday, June 22, 7:30 PM ET
Grace M. Cho presents Tastes Like War
In conversation with Sun Yung Shin

Grace M. Cho, author of the award-winning book Haunting the Korean Diaspora, takes the virtual Greenlight stage to present her stunning new memoir, Tastes Like War. Part food memoir, part sociological investigation, Tastes Like War is a hybrid text about a daughter’s search through intimate and global history for the roots of her mother’s schizophrenia. In her mother’s final years, Cho learned to cook dishes from her mother’s childhood in order to invite the past into the present, and to hold space for her mother’s multiple voices at the table. And through careful listening over these shared meals, Cho discovered not only the things that broke the brilliant, complicated woman who raised her—but also the things that kept her alive. Cho is joined in conversation by award-winning poet Sun Yung Shin, who says of Tastes Like War, “I have been waiting for this book all my life.”
