Paul Yoon’s debut novel, Snow Hunters, began when he had been researching Korean history while writing his acclaimed short story collection, Once The Shores. He begins the reading by explaining that while in the process of researching a story in the collection, he came across a tidbit about Korean soldiers after the Korean conflict ended.
