Join us for a conversation with the author of Passage to Pusan, Louise Evans OAM, moderated by the Memorial's Senior Historian and Curator, Brad Manera. Passage to Pusan tells the true story of Australian matriarch, Thelma Healy, and her brave 15,000km solo journey to war-torn South Korea in 1961 to find the grave of her son Vince, who died fighting in the Korean War a decade earlier.
This special quarterly event is a fantastic opportunity to exhange ideas about Korean literature.
