Much of American identity can be explored through heritage, particularly in the traditions that families pass down from generation to generation.
For many Korean Americans, the question of identity means examining how these traditions fit into the modern way of life and what it means to embrace one’s heritage and history truly.
These themes are explored in a new children’s book that tells the story of a 10-year-old girl who learns to embrace her Korean heritage by immersing herself in her family’s history and legacy.
Christine Paik, author of "The Girl In The Gold Dress," joined Midday Edition on Wednesday to discuss the inspiration behind her book.
