books, north korea

Signed by Kang Chol-Hwan

It was just a few weeks ago when I finished reading Kang Chol-Hwan’s “The Aquariums of Pyongyang” and got really affected by the book. I never imagined meeting the man in person. But last night I did and my own copy was signed by Kang Chol-Hwan himself.

I am so grateful that a church mate told me about Mr. Kwan’s schedule to speak at the last day of this “Speaker Series on North Korea” organized by the North Korea Strategic Center (NKSC). Mr. Kwan talked about “North Korea: Recent Changes and Future Prospects”. I went there primarily for the possibility of having my own copy of “The Aquariums of Pyongyang” signed. I got what I wanted and more. I have more materials about North Korea and some of its defectors that I could read in the nights ahead:
