Sun Mee Chomet was six months old when her Korean family gave her up for adoption to an American family. How to Be a Korean Woman chronicles the acclaimed local actor, dancer and playwright's return to Seoul to meet her birth family and discover who she really is. Combining storytelling, music and movement, this hilarious, heartfelt and uniquely personal solo show explores themes of family, love, adulthood, motherhood and the universal longing to know one's past. Following a recent sold-out run at the Guthrie Theater, Chomet now brings How to Be a Korean Woman to Sabes Jewish Community Center for one show only. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
Visit Ayelet Walman’s website.
Ayelet Waldman, the mother of four children, brings refreshing candor to the socially-charged issues of wifehood, motherhood, sexuality and family in her best-selling collection of essays, Bad Mother, her popular Mommy Track Mystery series, and in her critically acclaimed literary novels, essays and book reviews in The New York Times, Salon.com… and others. Her 2006 novel, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, was yet another artistic and commercial success for Waldman and was made into the film The Other Woman, starring Natalie Portman and Lisa Kudrow.
Born in Israel and raised in New Jersey, Waldman was a Harvard Law School graduate working at a New York law firm when she met her husband, the Pulitzer Prize winning novelist, Michael Chabon. Waldman will discuss her relationship with Judaism and how it informs her writing; being a fearless and sometimes outspoken feminist; and her involvement in the Women in Prison project. She will explore the recurring theme of loss that is present in much of her work, and will discuss both her past writing and her most recent critically acclaimed novel, Red Hook Road (2010). Copies of Bad Mother and Red Hook Road will be available for purchase after the lecture.
