NICOLE CHUNG: Celebrates publication of the paperback edition of “A Living Remedy,” her memoir of family, class and grief. Chung, who is of Korean descent, grew up in a white Oregon town and was a scholarship student at a private university on the East Coast. No longer the only Korean there, she found community and the life she’d longed for. When her parents died within a year of one another, she was led to explore family bonds in the face of hardship and tragedy. Chung lives near Washington, D.C., and made her debut with the bestselling “All You Can Ever Know.” She will be in conversation with Chris Stedman, writer, activist and professor in the religion and philosophy department at Augsburg University. 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 5, SubText Books, 6 W. Fifth St., St. Paul.
