PASO ROBLES, CA – June 21, 2023 The Summer Reading Program’s Dive into Summer theme continues this month with a group discussion of Lisa See’s The Island of Sea Women on Wednesday, July 19, 6-7 pm, in the Library Conference Room.
Mi-ja and Young-sook, two girls living on the Korean island of Jeju, are best friends who come from vastly different backgrounds. When they are old enough, they begin working in the sea with their village’s all-female diving collective. As the girls start their positions as divers, they know they are beginning a life of excitement and responsibility—but also danger. Little do the two friends know that forces outside their control will push their friendship to the breaking point.
This title is available in various formats through the catalog. Registration is required for each participant. For ages 16+.
The Library Summer Reading Program 2023—Dive into Reading—is sponsored by the Library Foundation.
