Our sister in Christ, Marie Fujii, recently published her memoir titled “Growing Up American in Papa’s World: Stories of a Korean Immigrant Family.” It’s about her Korean immigrant family as they overcame seemingly insurmountable difficulties by drawing on their close family ties, strong work ethic, optimism and unfailing good humor.
Papa came alone from Korea to America in 1904, eventually saving enough to have his family join him. Mama’s unexpected death after the birth of their last child shook his world. Suddenly, Papa was faced with the daunting task of raising seven children, ages two to fourteen, by himself, in a foreign land.
America was now his home. As a farmer during the Depression years in Oregon and then Idaho, he struggled to keep his family together. These tales of Papa and his children are sometimes poignant, but more often humorous and a testament to a family that thrived in spite of the clash between Papa’s old world values and the Americanization of his children.
Come on to Logos Bookstore on April 14th and support Marie. It’s really good reading. Comments we’ve heard about the book – It’s a great testament to Papa – I couldn’t put it down – I laughed and cried. Even if you already have a copy of the book, get another one as a gift for your family and good friends – Mother’s Day and Father’s Day is around the corner – or someone’s birthday coming soon.
Hope to see you there!
