Suki Kim
chaired by Paula Morris

A glimpse inside the mysterious closed-off world of North Korea, a country where a military dictatorship exploits the myth of a Great Leader to its own citizens, who are "imprisoned in a gulag posing as a nation".

Suki Kim's extraordinary memoir of her time teaching English to the sons of North Korea's ruling class, Without You, There is No Us, was written at great personal risk.  Suki Kim has been travelling to North Korea as a journalist since 2002. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Harper's  and the New York Review of Books.
