Bestselling author Min Jin Lee visits Google to provide a masterclass on writing. In addition, she speaks about representation in media, fiction, non-fiction and her views on the evolving Asian-American identity.

In 2019, Apple ordered a television adaptation of Min’s New York Times bestselling book Pachinko. President Barack Obama selected Pachinko for his recommended reading list, calling it “a powerful story about resilience and compassion.” Lee’s debut novel Free Food for Millionaires was listed on the Top 10 Books of the Year for The Times of London, NPR’s “Fresh Air,” and USA Today, and was a national bestseller.

Lee’s work has also appeared in The New Yorker, NPR’s Selected Shorts, The New York Review of Books, The New York Times Magazine, The New York Times Book Review, Conde Nast Traveler, The Times of London, and The Wall Street Journal.
