In her new memoir, Occupy This Body, Seattle University theology and religious studies professor Sharon Suh relates her study of Buddhism to her recovery from a longtime eating disorder that she inherited from her mother, a Long Island Korean immigrant. She'll be joined in conversation by fellow Korean American author E.J. Koh, whose Pacific Northwest Book Award-winning memoir The Magical Language of Others also deals with a complex mother-daughter relationship.
