July 16th, 6:00PM at the Larkspur Library: TED Talk Screening of "My Escape From North Korea," by Hyeonseo Lee

Monday, July 16, 2018

As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thought her country was "the best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 90s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 14, to begin a life in hiding, as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope -- and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind.
