RESCHEDULED due to an invitation to be the May 21 musical guest on Saturday Night Live!

An Evening with Michelle Zauner
Author of “Crying in H Mart” and lead vocalist for “Japanese Breakfast”

Thursday, June 30 at 7pm

Crying in H Mart, Zauner’s first book, is the story of family, food, grief, and endurance. Zauner’s beloved bestselling memoir about growing up Korean American, losing her mother, and forging her own identity, was a New York Times notable book of the year.

As a musician, Grammy-nominated Zauner has won acclaim from major music outlets around the world. She is best known as a singer and guitarist who creates dreamy, shoegaze-inspired indie pop under the name Japanese Breakfast.

Jessica Hopper, Chicago-based music critic and author, will join Zauner in conversation.
