Korean Literary Club honors one of its own
On July 12, the Korean Literary Club (KLC) held a book-publication ceremony in honor of the recent collection by club adviser Dr. Yoon Soo Park. The title of the ceremony was “The Poetic World and Memoir of Yoon Soo Park.” The Mutual 14 resident spoke of the three poetry books he has published since moving to Leisure World in 2014, as well as his recent book “My Memoir.”
The KLC was established in 2008 by several Korean Americans residing in Leisure World who had a keen interest in writing essays and poems and studying Korean, as well as global, literary works. The group meets at 11 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 7, on the seccond and fourth Mondays of every month.
The members aim to develop their skills in writing poems, essays and novels. Many of them have received the Newcomers Award from well-known literary societies, and their works have been selected for publication by reputable literature magazines. Some of them have also published their own books of poems and essays.
