New Reads Book Club: The White Book by Han Kang

May 24, 2018



The New Reads Book Club focuses on contemporary literature and is hosted by Drawn and Quarterly staff members. The book club meetings take place every 4-6 weeks, and are open to all. 

For our next meeting, on Wednesday, June 20th, we will meet at La Petite Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (176 Bernard O.) at 7 pm to discuss The White Book by Han Kang. The evening will be hosted by Librairie D+Q staffer Benjamin. Join us for discussion and drinks!


**We offer a 20% discount on The White Book from now until the meeting date.**


We regret that the bookstore is not wheelchair accessible. There is a step at the entrance, followed by a half step and a door that opens inward. Once inside, there are no additional steps to access the bathroom, although the bathroom space is narrow. Alcohol will be served.

From the author of The Vegetarian and Human Acts comes a book like no other. The White Book is a meditation on colour, beginning with a list of white things. It is a book about mourning, rebirth and the tenacity of the human spirit. It is a stunning investigation of the fragility, beauty and strangeness of life. 

Translated from the Korean by Deborah Smith.
