Asian Heritage Month Giveaway
By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez
May is Asian Heritage Month in Canada!
As an Asian, a cultural enthusiast, and an advocate of racial justice, I’d like to take the opportunity to host The Asian Heritage Month Blog Event at The Bibliotaphe’s Closet for the month of May.
The purpose of this cultural-specific blog event is to advocate the opportunity for all to reflect on and celebrate the beauty and diversity of various Asian cultures and its music, film, art, and literature.
In celebration of Asian Heritage Month, what better way than to host another giveaway? At the end of the month, followers of The Bibliotaphe’s Closet will have a chance to win the international bestseller and winner of the Man Asian Literary Prize, the book, Please Look After Mom by Kyung-Sook Shin published by Vintage Canada!
Author: Kyung-Sook Shin
Format: Trade paperback
Publisher: Vintage Canada
Page Count: 254
Winner of The Man Asian Literary Prize 2011
From the back cover:
When sixty-nine-year-old So-Nyo is separated from her husband among the crowds of the Seoul subway station, her family begins a desperate search to find her. Yet as long-held secrets and private sorrows begin to reveal themselves, they are forced to wonder: how well did they actually know the woman they called Mom?
Told through the piercing voices and urgent perspectives of a daughter, son, husband, and mother, Please Look After Mom is at once an authentic picture of contemporary life in Kore and a universal story of family love.
