Min Jin Lee presents Pachinko
(A Greenlight First Editions Club Selection)
In conversation with Harold Augenbraum
Korean food reception to follow

Min Jin Lee’s debut novel, Free Food for Millionaires, was acclaimed as one of the Top 10 Novels of the Year by publications in the US and abroad. Her new release, Pachinko, is a tour de force following one Korean family in exile from its homeland and caught in the indifferent arc of history; the book is acclaimed by critics and authors nationwide, and Greenlight selected the book as its First Editions Club pick for February. This story of family, faith, and identity is a great testament to the long and troubled history of legal and social discrimination against Koreans living in Japan, whose stories Min Jin Lee wanted to acknowledge while she was writing the book. Harold Augenbraum, former Executive Director of the National Book Foundation, joins Min Jin Lee for conversation about her work. The discussion is followed by a reception to celebrate the book’s launch, featuring Korean food and beer.
