Author Robert Yune at Carnegie Library in Oakland, June 17.

Robert Yune, a University of Pittsburgh professor and author of the forthcoming novel Eighty Days of Sunlight, will speak at the Carnegie Library in Oakland on June 17 as part of its Writers LIVE series.
Robert Yune’s debut novel, Eighty Days of Sunlight, comprises “equal parts hilarity and heartbreak in an accomplished debut,” said Kirkus (4/15). The story follows a young Korean-American man who struggles to come to terms with his cultural identity and dysfunctional working-class family. Yune’s stories have been published in the The Kenyon Review, The Los Angeles Review, and Avery, among others. He lives and teaches writing in Pittsburgh.

A book signing follows the program with copies of the author's books available from Mystery Lovers Bookshop.
The event runs from 6:00 to 7:00 pm in the Quiet Reading Room on the library's first floor. Tickets are free, but registration is required and can be done online or by calling 412.622.8866.
