Featuring the author Michael Malice; and Doug Bandow, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute; moderated by Caleb O. Brown, Director of Multimedia, Cato Institute.

No country is as misunderstood as North Korea, and no modern tyrant has remained more mysterious than the Dear Leader, Kim Jong Il. In his new work, DEAR READER: The Unauthorized Autobiography of Kim Jong Il, Michael Malice pulls back the curtain to expose the life story of the “Incarnation of Love and Morality.” Taken directly from books spirited out of Pyongyang, DEAR READER is a carefully reconstructed first‐​person account of the man behind the mythology, as well as a stranger‐​than‐​fiction history of this unique country. Please join us Friday, March 21, at 4:00 p.m., as Malice separates the fact from fiction and explains what life is really like in the least‐​free nation on earth.
