Adam Johnson will read from his most recent work, The Orphan Master's Son (2012), a novel set in North Korea that brings to life its prison camps, orphanages, economic misery, routine corruption, and palaces of the bureaucratic elite. In advance praise, novelist David Mitchell called it, "An addictive novel of daring ingenuity; a study of sacrifice and freedom in a citizen-eating dynasty; and a timely reminder that anonymous victims of oppression are also human beings who love. A brave and impressive book." Johnson's award-winning fiction includes the story collection, Emporium (2002), and the novel, Parasites Like Us (2003). The author will also take part in a free Q&A/seminar session at 4:15PM, also in the Assembly Hall. Presented by the New York State Writers Institute.
