The 2020 book is “The Island of Sea Women” by New York Times bestselling author Lisa See. The book chronicles the lives and friendship between Young-sook and Mi-ja, two girls living on the Korean island of Jeju. They become the closest of friends. However, their differences are impossible to ignore: Young-sook was born into a long line of haenyeo and will inherit her mother’s position of leading the divers; whereas Mi-ja is the daughter of a Japanese collaborator and will forever carry that mark. From the Japanese occupation of the 1930s and 1940s, World War II, to the Korean War, events will push their seemingly unbreakable bond to its breaking point. This beautifully written and thoughtful novel shines a light on the remarkable haenyeo culture and two women who are a part of it. Author Lisa See launches her Maryland virtual book tour in conversation with PGCMLS CEO Roberta Phillips on October 4 at 7 pm.

The event is co-presented with the Prince George’s Community College Library, PGCMLS Foundation, and Prince George’s County Human Relations Commission. One Maryland One Book is a program of Maryland Humanities.
