Saturday, November 09, 2019, 02:00pm - 03:00pm

Join Shin Freedman for an introduction to her book, Doll for a Day: Growing Up Post-War Korea, the story of a girl, born in the Year of the Ox, growing up in Korea in the 1950s and 1960s and her unusual coming of age drama. Like an ox, she worked hard to be useful and worthy to all around her and accomplish her lifetime goal of being educated. Choi vividly recalls the first student anti-government demonstration in Taegu and the military revolution of the 5.16 Coup D'etat. What were this young Korean girl's dreams? How did she learn to speak up? How did she support herself, stay in school and finish her education? We meet the people who influenced her early life: teachers and family members.

Books will be available for sale and signing.
