CNN's former Seoul travel, culture and style editor Frances Cha will discuss her debut novel, "If I Had Your Face" (Ballantine Books, April 2020), during a free live webcast Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 6:00 PM ET hosted by The Korea Society, a nonprofit organization headquartered in New York, dedicated to building greater awareness between the U.S. and Korea.

Cha's work has appeared in The Atlantic, V Magazine and Women's Wear Daily. A graduate of Dartmouth College and the Columbia University MFA writing program, Cha taught Media Studies at Seoul's Ewha Womens University and creative writing at both Columbia University and Seoul's Yonsei University. Cha currently resides in Brooklyn.

Her riveting book follows the interconnected lives of four young women in contemporary Seoul, a world of strict social hierarchies, extreme plastic surgery and K-pop fan mania. Cha will discuss her debut novel and career as a journalist and her connection to both Korea and the US.

Venue: The Korea Society
