NDWC Shared Read Book Discussion - Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok  7:00 PM

Thursday October 27th at 7pm 

Book Discussion at The Library at The Public Theater 

Come discuss NDWC's Fall 2016 Shared Read Book Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok (2011) with other ND Women. We'll be meeting on October 27th at The Library at The Public Theater. Women in the Notre Dame Family across the globe are reading this work at the same time, and we're looking forward to another opportunity for a lively and engaging discussion.

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 like the staggering degree of her poverty, the weight of her family’s future resting on her shoulders, or 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. 

Written in an indelible voice that dramatizes the tensions of an immigrant girl growing up between two cultures, surrounded by a language and world only half understood, Girl in Translation is an unforgettable and classic novel of an American immigrant-a moving tale of hardship and triumph, heartbreak and love, and all that gets lost in translation.
