Kim Ae-ran read an extract from her novel, My Palpitating Life, in front of an audience of some 100 people. She then talked about her upbringing and the impact of language and space on her works. The evening concluded with a Q&A session that allowed the audience to make most of the rare opportunity to hear directly from the author about her writing.
