6:00 PM, Arcata Library's 'A Novel Idea' Book Group, Pachinko, by Min Jin Lee

Thursday, April 22, 2021

This month's story follows one Korean family from the early 1900s with Sunja, the prized daughter of a poor family, whose unplanned pregnancy threatens their reputation. Sunja is abandoned by her lover but rescued by a young minister who offers to marry and take her to Japan. This epic explores age-old questions of faith, family, and what it means to be exiled from one's homeland, trapped in the indifferent arc of history.
