The Book Club will meet Tuesday, March 10, 2020
at 3:30 pm. This is the second Tuesday of the month.
We would love to have you come and join in on the discussion. When you go in to the library for the book, be sure to tell them you are with the Senior Center, and they will let you check the book out. There's no need to go out and buy it, unless you want to own it.
An extraordinary insight into life under one of the world’s most ruthless and secretive dictatorships – and the story of one woman’s terrifying struggle to avoid capture/repatriation and guide her family to freedom.
As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee was one of millions trapped by a secretive and brutal communist regime. Her home on the border with China gave her some exposure to the world beyond the confines of the Hermit Kingdom and, as the famine of the 1990s struck, she began to wonder, question and to realise that she had been brainwashed her entire life. Given the repression, poverty and starvation she witnessed surely her country could not be, as she had been told “the best on the planet”?
Aged seventeen, she decided to escape North Korea. She could not have imagined that it would be twelve years before she was reunited with her family.
Second Tuesday of every month
