A Doll For A Day: Growing up in Post-War Korea on February 24, 2024, at 1:00 pm in Heberton Hall

Choi Kyung-Shin grew up in post-war Korea during the 1950s and 60s, a period that was starkly different from the modern and prosperous nation we know today. She aspired to contribute to her community and prove her worth to those around her. Guided by a fortune teller's prediction, she embarked on a challenging path, striving to overcome the limited educational opportunities available to girls at the time. Shin became a Fulbright Scholar and writer, eventually moving to Brattleboro, VT. 

Shin will share the background of the Korean war, life in post-war Korea and read from her book "A Doll For A Day." Copies will be for sale at the event.
