About the book

The Last Story of Mina Lee  by Nancy Jooyoun Kim

A “Margot Lee’s mother, Mina, isn’t returning her calls. It’s a mystery to twenty-six-year-old Margot, until she visits her childhood apartment in Koreatown, LA, and finds that her mother has suspiciously died. The discovery sends Margot digging through the past, unraveling the tenuous invisible strings that held together her single mother’s life as a Korean War orphan and an undocumented immigrant, only to realize how little she truly knew about her mother.”

Interwoven with Margot’s present-day search is Mina’s story of her first year in Los Angeles as she navigates the promises and perils of the American myth of reinvention. While she’s barely earning a living by stocking shelves at a Korean grocery store, the last thing Mina ever expects is to fall in love. But that love story sets in motion a series of events that have consequences for years to come, leading up to the truth of what happened the night of her death.

    Hi Donna,

    I have had an unexpected change in my responsibilities this month which means that I did not have time to finish even half the book! I won’t be at the gathering this coming week but I hope to attend the next one if I am able. I hope you all enjoyed the book 🙂

      Hi Christi! You can still come even if you haven’t finished the book (honestly, this one may be a DNF for me 🤷‍♀️.) But if we don’t see you tomorrow hopefully we will see you next month 🙂
