Korean-American Michelle Zauner, author of memoir Crying in H Mart and lead singer of the Grammy-nominated band Japanese Breakfast, makes a Bay Area Book Festival appearance at Oakland’s California Ballroom on Saturday, April 1 at 7pm. Her memoir is woven with food as much as it is with memory, and Zauner artfully traces those connections between food, culture, family, and so much more.
Crying in H Mart has received critical acclaim and bestseller status. It has been applauded for its evocative and sensuous writing, as well as for its frank discussions of death and grieving. Now, with its arrival in paperback, Zauner is coming to the Bay Area for a rousing, wide-ranging discussion of Crying in H Mart. The event will be Zauner’s only Bay Area book stop this spring, and it is likely to sell out quickly.
