Harvard Book Store is pleased to welcome author, lecturer, and human rights activist LUONG UNG for a discussion of her new memoir, Lulu in the Sky: A Daughter of Cambodia Finds Love, Healing, and Double Happiness.
Concluding the trilogy that started with her bestselling memoir, First They Killed My Father
, Loung Ung illuminates her struggle to reconcile with her past while moving forward toward happiness. When readers first met Ung in First They Killed My Father
, she was a young, innocent child in Cambodia. But forced by the Khmer Rouge into the life of a child soldier, she soon found herself locked in a desperate struggle for survival in Cambodia's notorious killing fields. Now, Lulu in the Sky
tells the next chapter in Ung's life, revealing her daily struggle to keep darkness and depression at bay. Lulu in the Sky
is the story of Ung's tentative steps into love, activism, and marriage—a journey that takes her to a Cambodian village to reconnect with her mother's spirit, to a vocation focused on healing the landscape of her birth, and to the patience and unconditional support of a very special man.
