Pachinko

By Min Jin Lee

Pachinko follows one Korean family through the generations, beginning in early 1900s Korea with Sunja, the prized daughter of a poor yet proud family, whose unplanned pregnancy threatens to shame them all. Deserted by her lover, Sunja is saved when a young tubercular minister offers to marry and bring her to Japan.

What is The Girly Book Club you ask?

The concept is simple. We’re a global book club for likeminded women to discuss great books! All members of the book club read the same book over the same period; members then meet up in their respective cities at the end of each month to discuss the book and exchange views. This forum provides a rare and relaxed atmosphere for women to meet other like-minded women over a glass of wine and share a common passion.

What our members are saying about GBC!
  • The GBC has been an amazing answer to my quest to find a place for myself to belong and to just be me. I am the mamma to 8 children (foster and biological). Though they are all the loves of my life, I felt like I needed something to cultivate the inner person inside the mom persona and the Girly Book Club has been an answer to that pursuit. I love the books and the fellowship with other bright, engaged women. I look forward to reading the marvelous book club pick and going to book club every month!

  • I love how friendly and open everyone is at these meetings. As an introvert, I have struggled to find a social circle right for me. With The Girly Book Club, everyone is welcome to come as they are and enjoy an evening out to discuss a shared hobby, reading!

  • I have been with GBC for about 1.5 yrs. It allowed me to find a great group of friends in a new city, and I love that it gives us all an excuse to get out and see each other. I honestly cannot imagine my life in Minneapolis without these women. All in all, I would recommend GBC to any woman looking to expand her circle and just breathe life and fun into her life.
