**Cancelled and rescheduled to January 23** Contemporary Evening Book Discussion: Girl in Translation, by Jean Kwok

December 12, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Calendar with caption Event Rescheduled

***This book discussion has been cancelled and rescheduled to January 23***

Twelve-year-old Kimberly and her mother emigrate from Hong Kong to Brooklyn, where a relative owns a garment factory and offers them both a “good job.” Drawing on the author’s personal experience, this debut novel tells the anguish of the contemporary immigration story, including illegal factory work, child labor, and economic exploitation, with education and perseverance ultimately leading to success. An unforgettable tale of hardship, triumph, and love.

Moderated by Professor Mike Boecherer of SCCC

Copies of the books are available at the Reference desk. Everyone is welcome!
