TAP-NY Fall Book Club: Girl in Translation
November 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
Join us for TAP-NY’s Fall book club! We will be meeting to discuss Girl in Translation by bestselling author Jean Kwok.
When Kimberly Chang and her mother emigrate from Hong Kong to Brooklyn squalor, she quickly begins a secret double life: exceptional schoolgirl during the day, Chinatown sweatshop worker in the evenings. Disguising the more difficult truths of her life—the staggering degree of her poverty, the weight of her family’s future resting on her shoulders, her secret love for a factory boy who shares none of her talent or ambition—Kimberly learns to constantly translate not just her language but herself, back and forth, between the worlds she straddles.
Please join us to share your thoughts and discuss the book in one of our members’ cozy apartments in Midtown. Sign up now to reserve your spot!
