Book Launch | In Limbo by Deb JJ Lee
Join Us for the Launch of In Limbo!
Books of Wonder is so excited to host the launch of DEB JJ LEE's YA debut, In Limbo! A graphic memoir about a Korean American girl's coming-of-age story — and a coming-home story — set between a New Jersey suburb and Seoul, South Korea. Deb JJ Lee will be in conversation with ROSEMARY VALERO-O'CONNELL, Illustrator of Laura Dean Keeps Breaking up with Me.
Deborah (Jung-Jin) Lee knows she's different. Ever since her family emigrated from South Korea to the United States, she's felt her Otherness. And as the pressures of high school ramp up, friendships change or end and everything gets harder. Even home isn't a safe place, as fights with her mom escalate. Deb is caught in a limbo, with nowhere to go.
But Deb is resilient. And during a trip to South Korea, she realizes something that changes her perspective on her family, her heritage, and herself.
Monday, March 6th at 6PM EST at Our 17th St Location!
