Cosmos Book Club is having its seventh gathering on Monday, April 8 at AAWW to discuss If You Leave Me by Crystal Hana Kim. This rich, riveting debut novel is about war, family, and forbidden love. The grand saga delves into the lives of two ill-fated lovers Haemi and Kyunghwan and the difficult choices they are forced to make in the years surrounding the Korean War. As Haemi becomes a wife and a mother, she is fraught with longing for autonomy in a rapidly changing world that places limitations on her identity while also having to reconcile the need to provide security for her family.

At this book club we will be joined by author Crystal Hana Kim for a Q&A and book signing following our group discussion! Snacks and beverages will be provided, generously donated by our sponsor Yooeating.
