Japanese Breakfast’s plate is full, pun intended. From her scheduled festival appearances to the indie rocker starring in the revival of The Piano Recital alongside Kevin Morby at Carnegie Hall next month, Michelle Zauner is spread thin. At the same time, Zauner remains hard at work finalizing the script for her debut memoir, Crying In H Mart‘s film adaptation.
However, that’s not going to stop her from giving fans of the best-selling memoir a proper book tour of the piece. In 2021, Zauner held limited in-person pop-ups for the book, opting for a full virtual book tour instead. Now, the author has grown more comfortable with face-to-face interactions and will be embarking on a multi-book tour to commemorate its paperback release this spring.
Zauner took to Twitter to share the news, writing, “Crying in H Mart is finally out in paperback on March 28th, and I’ll be heading out on my first book tour to celebrate! Very excited to roll up to your city for the first time with a tote bag and a book instead of a giant trailer of gear. ”
