Join us for a book discussion on The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See. Books will be provided to the first 10 individuals to sign up.

In this novel:
“Mi-ja and Young-sook, two girls living on the Korean island of Jeju, are best friends that come from very different backgrounds. When they are old enough, they begin working in the sea with their village’s all-female diving collective. As the girls take up their positions as baby divers, they know they are beginning a life of excitement and responsibility but also danger.

Throughout many decades, the residents of Jeju find themselves caught between warring empires. Mi-ja is the daughter of a Japanese collaborator, and she will forever be marked by this association. Young-sook was born into a long line of haenyeo and will inherit her mother’s position leading the divers in their village. Little do the two friends know that after surviving hundreds of dives and developing the closest of bonds, forces outside their control will push their friendship to the breaking point.”
