PELHAM, N.Y. – March’s Book Club Selection for the Pelham Public Library is “Please Look After Mom” by South Korean author Kyung-Sook Shin.

The book will be discussed at the library on Thursday, March 6, at 7:30 p.m. The book is the story of Park So-nyo, 69, who disappears  after becoming separated from her husband at a Seoul subway station. But the novel is the story of her family as well, as they reflect upon her; it is told from the perspectives of the husband, the eldest son, a daughter, and Park So-nyo herself.

In a review, novelist Jamie Ford wrote: "Please Look After Mom isn't merely a story of familial loss and longing, of the many veils of shame and surrender beneath one roof. This tale is a door, and once you cross its threshold, you'll never be able to go back to that comfortable place you came from. Your perceptions will be transformed. Permanently."

The library is open 6 days a week, including Mondays and Thursdays until 9 p.m.

Upcoming programs include a New York Health Exchange Presentation by the Business Council of Westchester on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 1:30 p.m. and an eight week career counseling seminar with orientation sessions scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 13 and Monday, Feb. 24, at 6:30 p.m.
