The Schaumburg Township District Library Saturday celebrated its One Book, One Community winter book, "Pachinko," with a carnival Saturday afternoon at the main library, 130 S. Roselle Road, Schaumburg.

Pachinko, Korean-American author Min Jin Lee's second novel published in 2017, is about a Korean family that migrates to Japan. For younger readers, the recommended books are "Listen, Slowly" and "Dear Juno," which also have intercultural themes.
