The Yankee Institute Presents

Lunch with Melanie Kirkpatrick
Author of Escape from North Korea: The Untold Story of Asia's Underground Railroad

Stamford Sheraton | 700 East Main Street, Stamford, CT 06901
Monday, January 7, 2013 | Lunch 11:30 a.m.


It is a crime to leave North Korea. Yet increasing numbers of North Koreans dare to flee. They go first to neighboring China, which rejects them as criminals, then on to Southeast Asia or Mongolia, and finally to South Korea, the United States, and other free countries.

They travel along a secret route known as the new underground railroad.  Join us for lunch to hear Melanie discuss her newly published book, which tells the harrowing story of the North Koreans’ quest for liberty.
