University faculty and staff members will discuss the themes of Steph Cha’s book Your House Will Pay. The novel illuminates racial tensions in Los Angeles by following two families in crisis — one Korean American, one African American — who are grappling with the effects of a decades-old crime. The book explores race, class and community while sparking hope for the possibility of connection and mutual understanding.
You may attend either in person or via livestream. Admission is free, but registration for either in-person or livestream attendance is required. Sponsored by University Relations and Ventura County Library. Copies of the book are available at the county library branches; come hear the discussion whether you’ve begun reading or not.
One County, One Book is a countywide literary event and series of activities encouraging community members to read and discuss the same book. The programming activities will take place during the month of October, culminating with an author talk featuring Steph Cha on Saturday, Oct. 30.
