Wednesday Morning Book GroupWednesday June 3, 2020
10:00 AM until 11:00 AM
This month the Wednesday Morning book club will be discussing "White Chrysanthemum" by Mary Lynn Bracht.
Korea, 1943. Hana has lived her entire life under Japanese occupation. As a haenyeo, a female diver of the sea, she enjoys an independence that few other Koreans can still claim. Until the day Hana saves her younger sister from a Japanese soldier and is herself captured and transported to Manchuria. There she is forced to become a comfort woman in a Japanese military brothel. But haenyeo are women of power and strength. She will find her way home. South Korea, 2011. Emi has spent more than sixty years trying to forget the sacrifice her sister made, but she must confront the past to discover peace. Seeing the healing of her children and her country, can Emi move beyond the legacy of war to find forgiveness?
The group meets once a month, usually the first Wednesday of the month, at 10 am. Registeration required.
