Author of the award-winning debut novel The Leavers, will examine themes of immigration, borders, and belonging
Lisa Ko is the author of The Leavers, the winner of the 2016 PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction. A vivid and moving examination of borders and belonging, The Leavers is the story of how one boy comes into his own when everything he’s loved has been taken away-and how one woman learns to live with the mistakes of her past.
