Author Nami Mun comes to the Barnes & Nobles at the Grove to sign and discuss her debut novel Miles from Nowhere. The book follows 13-year-old Korean-American Joon “through the streets of pre-Giuliani New York City of the 1980's, after she flees her dysfunctional immigrant parents. For five years, Joon threads a path of survival through homelessness, drug addiction, and physical abuse…Miles from Nowhere is Joon's streetwise meditation on love, fate and fortune, as she begins a long climb toward wholeness.” ARTWALK
The monthly Downtown Artwalk runs until 9 pm tonight. There's always plenty to do and see at this event, but tonight be sure to drop by photographer Gary Leonard's space for the final event at 740 S. Olive. (He's moving spaces.) The "Hello-Goodbye" festivities will include diverse musical performances and photography. The gallery opens at 3 pm and the reception and music will go from 7-9:30 pm.
