October 9, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Moore Hall, Room 109, University of Hawai‘i at Manoa

The recently published Stolen Dreams – A Manchurian Legacy is a historical biography about the life of the grandfather of the author, Julie Sormark, in Manchuria, China, from 1898 to 1940. Julie will talk about the growth of the city of Harbin and the impact that history had on her grandfather’s business and family, with a particular focus on how political events at the end of the last century in Russia, Japan, Korea and China shaped the developments in Manchuria. Julie Sormark was born in Shanghai, grew up in Japan and graduated from Sophia University in Tokyo. She has lived and worked most of her life in the Far East, where she has been a teacher for the past 35 years, specializing in English pronunciation, on which subject she has published numerous books. The book Stolen Dreams – A Manchurian Legacy is on www.amazon.com and will also be available at the presentation.
