Adopted Korean Women Writers: History Shapes Our Writing Journey (exact date/time TBA)
Overseas adopted Korean American women will read their poetry, memoirs and essays that document their collective experiences. With adoption from South Korea linked to the rights of unwed mothers and also foreign policy including North Korea relations, adopted Korean writers contribute important documentation and discourse to shift the narrative and dialogue and bring attention to the history and current conditions surrounding inter-country adoption (ICA) from South Korea.
