Town Hall Seattle and The Bushwick Book Club Seattle present
An Evening of Music Inspired by Michelle Zauner’s “Crying in H Mart”
A Fresh Take on Zauner’s Poignant, Bestselling Memoir

Town Hall is proud to partner with The Bushwick Book Club Seattle for its twelfth mainstage season presenting concerts of original music inspired by literature. Each event showcases a lineup of local, professional musicians and artists each offering a fresh response to that evening’s source text, plus extras like an audience quiz, short film, or scholarly introduction. Book choices range from whimsical to solemn, classic to contemporary, and most every place in between.

This event will feature original music and art inspired by Michelle Zauner’s Crying in H Mart.

Grieving indie musician Michelle Zauner, lead vocalist and songwriter for Japanese Breakfast, shares in lyrical prose how the shelves of H Mart hold memories of her Korean mother and the very ingredients of their life together.

“A warm and wholehearted work of literature, an honest and detailed account of grief over time, studded with moments of hope, humor, beauty, and clear-eyed observation.” –Seattle Times

Performers include Drea Marilyn, Jed Crisologo, Josh Hou, Amanda Winterhalter, Kendra Peterson, Sheryl Wiser, Emily Persha, and Nic Mansangkay. Hosted by Mary Purdy.
