Festival Pass or ticket required - please visit the 2023 Mission Creek Website.

The Mission Creek Festival Presents Japanese Breakfast indie sensation and NYT Bestselling author Michelle Zauner, who will read from and talk about her memoir, Crying in H Mart. She will be joined in conversation by Bryn Lovitt.  Prairie Lights will have signed copies of Crying in H Mart, newly in paperback, for sale at the event. "Michelle Zauner has written a book you experience with all of your senses: sentences you can taste, paragraphs that sound like music. She seamlessly blends stories of food and memory, sumptuousness and grief, to weave a complex narrative of loyalty and loss." --Rachel Syme, New Yorker Writer
