A launch party for Sarah Kuhn’s YA (young adult) debut, “I Love You So Mochi,” will be held on Sunday, June 2, from 3 to 6 p.m. at The Ripped Bodice, 3806 Main St., Los Angeles.
Coming from Scholastic, the book is a fun, Japan-set rom-com about a Japanese American fashionista who falls for an aspiring med student who moonlights as a costumed mochi mascot.
Special guests will include host Jenny Yang, fellow author Maurene Goo, and readers Keiko Agena, Will Choi, and Jake Choi. There will be a giveaway from Ally Maki’s Asian American Girl Club and delightful mochi treats by justJENN designs.
