The kiBooka web­site was cre­at­ed
by author Lin­da Sue Park.

This kiBooka web­site is a source of great hap­pi­ness for me. When my career began more than 20 years ago, there were very few cre­ators of Kore­an ances­try pub­lish­ing in the US—it would have been a for­lorn site indeed! I’m excit­ed about the tal­ent­ed writ­ers and artists whose books are now avail­able, and hope you will enjoy learn­ing about them and their work.
