Read first chapter of debut novel from this bestselling author

If you’re looking for something fun to do tonight to kick off your weekend, then look no further. Vroman’s bookstore in Pasadena will be celebrating the paperback release of Girl in Translation, the bestselling debut novel by Jean Kwok — a moving and inspiring work that’s making a big splash in the publishing world.

Published in 15 countries, Girl in Translation is an award-winning book about a young Hong Kong immigrant in America named Kimberly Chang, a smart girl who, living a secret double life between school during the day and a Chinatown sweatshop at night (not to mention her secret love), understands that her family’s future is in her hands as she constantly translates not just her language but herself between the worlds she straddles. 

You can meet bestselling author Jean Kwok at Vroman’s Bookstore on Friday, May 6 at 7 PM.

695 E Colorado Blvd
Pasadena, CA
(626) 449-5320
In the meantime, take a few minutes to read the first chapter of Girl in Translation, which Jean Kwok has generously shared with the LA Books Examiner.
