PLG Graphic Novel Book group discusses Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea

Led by Greenlight bookseller Emily, our graphic novel book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens reads and discusses comics and graphic novels in a variety of genres. For April, the group discusses Guy Delisle’s Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea – the graphic novel that made his career, and an international bestseller for more than ten years. Delisle became one of the few Westerners to be allowed access to the fortress-like country when he was working in animation for a French company. While living in the nation’s capital for two months on a work visa, Delisle observed everything he was allowed to see of the culture and lives of the few North Koreans he encountered, bringing a sardonic and skeptical perspective on a place rife with propaganda. Pyongyang is an informative, personal, and accessible look at a dangerous and enigmatic country. Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.
