The next Global Book Club meeting will discussing the book by Yeonmi Park.

  • What is it like to grow up in North Korea, believing that everything good flows from the Great Leader? 
  • What is it like to be trafficked, and to live with traffickers? 
  • To escape across the desert and to start again as a refugee in a country where you are seen as backward and dirty? 
  • To speak to international audiences about justice and human rights? 

Yeonmi Park had experienced all these things by the time she was in her early twenties, and in this book she tells her remarkable story.

'Clear-eyed and devastating' Observer
