There’s no other word but “harrowing” for Seattle author Blaine Harden’s new book, “Escape from Camp 14: One Man’s Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West.” Harden, long-time reporter for the Washington Post, has written the story of Shin Dong-Hyuk, a young man raised in a North Korean political prison camp who had to make some heartbreaking decisions on the way to gaining his freedom.
Harden discussed his book last night with host Terry Tazioli on “Well Read,” state public access channel TVW’s books and authors program. I chime in with a North Korea reading list at the end. You can see the program tonight (Wednesday) at 6:30 p.m. on Tacoma public television station KBTC, or watch it here:
