Please join us for some socialization, book discussions and lots of fun! LYC Book Club meets the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. except for the month of September. All are Welcome. You are encouraged to read the book selection for the month but you can always join us and listen to what others have to say. Those discussions may perk your interest to read the book.
Our book selection for July 2nd is “The Girl with Seven Names: A North Korean Defector’s Story” by Hyeonseo Lee (Jane).
As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee was one of the millions trapped by a secretive and brutal communist regime. Her home on the border with China gave her some exposure to the world beyond the confines of the Hermit Kingdom and as the famine of the 1990’s struck, she began to wonder, question and to realize that she had been brainwashed her entire life. Given the repression, poverty, and starvation she witnessed surely her country could not be, as she had been told “the best on the planet.”
