The New Yorker called “Shelter” an “absorbing, suspenseful debut.” The Chicago Tribune’s Kevin Nance said the book is “beautifully crafted.”
Warren Wilson College creative writing professor Gary Hawkins said, “We chose Jung Yun for her ability to speak to the struggles and joys of stepping through family and identity, honor and individuality – the kinds of experiences our students have at this time of their lives, and the constant work of all of us.” “Shelter” ranks No. 1 in BuzzFeed’s list of the “Most Buzzed-About Books of 2016.” The novel was also a finalist for the 2016 Barnes & Noble “Discover Great New Writers Award.”
The Harwood-Cole Memorial Lecture is free and open to the public. The event takes place in the college’s Kittredge Community Arts Center., 701 Warren Wilson Road. For more information about Jung Yun and “Shelter,” visit https://jungyun.info.
