Library book group to discuss Girl in Translation
The Paso Robles City Library invites the public to discuss Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok on Thursday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Library Conference Room.
Loosely based on the author’s own life, Girl in Translation tells the story of Kimberly Chang and her mother who emigrate from Hong Kong to Brooklyn. Kimberly settles into leading a double life: exceptional schoolgirl by day, and sweatshop worker by night, Kimberly is forced to constantly translate not just her language, but herself, straddling the well-to-do world of her school days with the grinding poverty of her home life.
The Paso Robles City Library is located at 1000 Spring Street and is open Monday – Friday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information on library programs and events, please call (805) 237-3870.
