Literary talk with translator Sora Kim-Russell

The KCC’s September literature night is a special event: a Zoom conversation with translator Sora Kim-Russell, focusing on her latest translation to make it into print here, Pyun Hye-young’s The Law of Lines (LKL review here). To make the conversation worthwhile, the KCC expects us all to have read the book in advance. It is readily available in bookstores or online.

Note the unusual mid-day start time for the event – so that the star guest joining from Korea doesn’t have to be up in the early hours of the morning. Register with the KCC by 1 September.

You can read LKL’s own interview with Sora Kim-Russell here.
