Though she was born in Seoul and grew up partly in California, author Krys Lee also has a few ties to Washington State. Some of her work is based on her activist work with North Korean defectors. Ms. Lee is reading at the Seattle branch of the University Bookstore on the second leg of her book tour, and was kind enough to answer some questions for us.
In honor of Japanese American Day of Remembrance and the 70th anniversary signing of Executive Order 9066, the Minidoka Pilgrimage Planning Committee, Friends of Minidoka, and Seattle University are proud to present this year’s Day of Remembrance Taiko Festival 2012. Seven taiko (Japanese drumming) groups are performing.
Krys Lee reads from her debut short story collection, Drifting House.
