Blaine Harden: Escape from a North Korean Prison Camp
Very few people born and raised in North Korea's "no-exit" political prison camps have escaped and survived, but Shin Dong-hyuk did. Acclaimed Seattle journalist Blaine Harden, author of Escape from Camp 14, tells Shin's story and, through the lens of his life, unlocks the secrets of the world's most repressive totalitarian state. Shin knew nothing of civilized existence--he saw his mother as a competitor for food and witnessed the execution of his family--but his life and escape offer an unequaled inside account of North Korea, and a tale of endurance, courage, and survival. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
