DMA Arts & Letters Live presents Michelle Zauner, who will talk about her acclaimed memoir, Crying in H Mart. Zauner delivers an unflinching, powerful memoir about growing up Korean American, losing her mother, and forging her own identity. 

Zauner tells of growing up one of the few Asian American kids at her school, of struggling with her mother’s high expectations, of a painful adolescence, and of treasured months with her mother bonding over heaping plates of food. As she got older, her Koreanness began to feel more distant. It was her mother’s diagnosis of terminal cancer that forced a reckoning with her identity and brought her to reclaim the gifts of taste, language, and history her mother had given her.
