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
