Featuring: Hyeonseo Lee, Sergio del Molino; moderated by Zhiling Gao
Location: The Bookworm
Event Code: BW27C
Sergio del Molino and Hyeonseo Lee have both crafted spellbinding, powerful memoirs. Del Molino lost his young son to a rare and aggressive form of leukemia, and his memoir, The Violet Hour, is a moving account that muses on life and death. Lee’s story is also one of life and death – her book, The Girl with Seven Names, is the story of her defection from North Korea, her decade spent in China, and the subsequent escape of her parents. This session will be moderated by Zhiling Gao, currently working on a social memoir set in her birthplace of Inner Mongolia.
