Author Sandra Park will read and sign her new book, If You Live in a Small House.

About the book: It’s the early 1950s in Hawai‘i. A multi-generation
Korean-American family crams into a house in
the Coconut Grove suburb of windward O‘ahu,
across the mountains from Honolulu. With
too many in too small a space, dreams either
shrink-to-fit or seek escape—father recalls his
wartime romance, sister-in-law Gloria yearns
for a husband, son Ezra sows the seeds of
homesickness even as he plots to leave home.
Sandra Park’s novella captures the pent-up
desires of family and an endless fascination with
strangers. House, island, world—it’s a story that
sings like a radio tune, familiar to anyone struck
by longing and homesickness.
