Effingham Public Library Hosts Bestselling Author Michelle ZaunerOnline

Thanks to a new collaborative effort -- Illinois Libraries Present -- Effingham Public Library will join more than 190 other libraries around the state in hosting bestselling author Michelle Zauner in a free online event at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 18.

During the hour-long event, Zauner will explore the intersection of food, culture, family, identity and loss, which she chronicled in her bestselling memoir “Crying in H Mart.” The Korean-American author is also a Grammy-nominated musical artist, recording indie pop music under the name Japanese Breakfast.

The author will discuss both her memoir and her music with moderator Jessica Hopper, a Chicago-based music critic, producer and author.
