Celebrating 100 Years of Modern Korean Literature
*featuring Kyung-Ran Jo (조경란), Bruce Fulton, and Youngmin Kwon*

Tuesday, September 26, 2017, 5:00-7:00 pm
Berkeley City Club - 2315 Durant Avenue

The publication of Yi Kwang-su’s novel *Mujŏng* (*The Heartless*) in 1917
is often cited as the starting point of modern Korean literature. Please
join us for a discussion of the fruits of a century of modern Korean
literature dating from the appearance of that landmark novel. Presentations
will be made from the point of view of a literary scholar and critic,
Professor Youngmin Kwon; a long-time translator (with Ju-Chan Fulton) of
modern Korean fiction, Professor Bruce Fulton; and a prize-winning fiction
writer, Kyung-Ran Jo.

This event is sponsored by the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea
in San Francisco for San Francisco Korea Week.
