"Miles from Nowhere" Author Coming to Purdue

Nami Mun, who was born in Seoul, South Korea, will speak this evening (26 February) at Purdue University in West Lafayette.

The talk, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Krannert Auditorium. The talk is presented by the Purdue Department of English and the Sycamore Review, Purdue's journal of literature, opinion and arts.

Mun's fiction debut, Miles From Nowhere, was published in January. The novel tells the story of Joon, a 13-year-old Korean-American girl who flees her dysfunctional family to live on the streets in New York City.
