Schaumburg Township District Library will host upcoming Zoom presentations by three acclaimed authors -- Michelle Zauner on May 18 and both Jessamine Chan and Emily Maloney May 25.

The events are a result of the Schaumburg Library's founding membership in the statewide collaboration known as Illinois Libraries Present.

 

"An Evening with Michelle Zauner" will be online beginning at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 18.

Best known as a singer and guitarist with her indie pop band Japanese Breakfast, Zauner wrote the bestselling memoir "Crying in H Mart." Her critically acclaimed 2021 album "Jubilee" was nominated for two Grammy Awards.

She will be joined on by Jessica Hopper, a Chicago-based music critic, producer and author for more than 20 years.

"An Evening with Jessamine Chan and Emily Maloney" will follow a week later at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 25, on Zoom.

The authors will discuss the systems of power that impact people's lives, families and finances that are at the heart of their books "The School of Good Mothers" by Chan, and "Cost of Living" by Maloney.

Chan is a New York Times bestselling author who lives in Chicago. Her short stories have been published in the literary magazines "Tin House" and "Epoch."
