Get Lit Tonight with The Big Texas Read, a free monthly online reading series


Tonight, The Big Texas Read presents author Wondra Chang, who will read from and discuss Sonju, the story of a woman who defies the rigid, oppressive Confucian tradition of order and conformity. Set against the historical background of the humiliating Japanese occupation of Korea and the horrors of the Korean War, Sonju portrays one woman’s journey to personal liberation. Wednesday, June 22, 7 PM CST. (Note: The heading of the sign-up page says "Writing Workshops," and indeed, the hosts do also sponsor workshops. But tonight's event is a reading.)

“If I have to kneel, I’ll kneel. But I can get up again. If I keep getting up myself, a day will come when I wouldn’t have to kneel down anymore.” ~Kim Tan, The Heirs
