Books in the Afternoon: The Orphan Master's Son

Thursday, March 20, 2014 | Other Dates

Join us for lively discussions of contemporary fiction. This month's selection is The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson. Discussions will be held in the Large Print Room on the First Floor from 1-2 PM, and again from 6-7 PM.

Pak Jun Do is the son of a singer mother whose career forcibly separated her from her family and an influential father who runs an orphan work camp. He rises to prominence using instinctive talents and eventually becomes a professional kidnapper and romantic rival to Kim Jong Il.
