Somewhere Sisters by Erika Hayasaki

What does it mean to give a child a good life?

PASO ROBLES, CA – April 19, 2023 Join the Paso Robles City Library’s Book Group on Wednesday, May 17, 6-7 pm in the Library Conference Room for a discussion of Erika Hayasaki’s Somewhere Sisters.

Told from their own perspectives, twin sisters Ha and Leon recount the story of their separation at birth to live with different families in different countries. Hayasaki contextualizes the sisters’ experiences with the fascinating and often sinister history of twin studies, intercountry and transracial adoption, and the nature-versus-nurture debate, as well as the latest scholarship and conversation surrounding adoption today, especially among adoptees. Somewhere Sisters is a richly textured, moving story of sisterhood and coming of age, told through the remarkable lives of young women who have redefined the meaning of family for themselves.

This title is available in various formats through the catalog. Registration is required for each participant. For ages 16+.
