The Future Library art project has another entry: Dear Son, My Beloved, by Han Kang.

Han, who won the Man Booker Prize in 2016 for The Vegetarian, revealed nothing else about the title that won’t be available for public consumption until 2114.

Han and the other authors who have contributed to The Future Library — including Margaret Atwood — provide a manuscript that’s locked in a special room in Oslo’s Deichman Library.

The room is lined with wood from the forest that will ultimately yield the paper upon which the novels are printed.

Read more about the project and Han’s ceremonial passing of the manuscript in the Guardian.
