As part of the University’s celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, the campus community is invited to attend a lecture by Michelle Zauner.

Zauner is best known as a singer and guitarist who creates dreamy, shoegaze-inspired indie pop under the name Japanese Breakfast. She has won acclaim from major music outlets around the world for releases like Psychopomp (2016) and Soft Sounds from Another Planet (2017). Her most recent album, Jubilee (2021), earned two GRAMMY nominations for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album.

Her first book, Crying in H Mart, now a New York Times Best Seller, is an unflinching, powerful memoir about growing up Korean-American, losing her mother, and forging her own identity.

She’s currently adapting her memoir for the screen for MGM’s Orion Pictures.

A meet and greet and book signing will follow the event.

This event is hosted as part of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month Celebration.
