Evening Book Discussion - Online

Wednesday, June 17, at 7 p.m.

This month's book is "All You Can Ever Know: A Memoir" by Nicole Chung.

What does it mean to lose your roots -- within your culture, within your family -- and what happens when you find them? Nicole Chung was born severely premature, placed for adoption by her Korean parents, and raised by a white family in a sheltered Oregon town. From childhood, she heard the story of her adoption as a comforting, prepackaged myth. But as Nicole grew up, she wondered if the story she'd been told was the whole truth. With warmth, candor, and startling insight, Nicole Chung tells of her search for the people who gave her up, which coincided with the birth of her own child.
