Snowboarder in Pyeongchang, South Korea

The Glen Ellyn Public Library is offering two culture-based programs about the Korean peninsula in honor of the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

The February programs will highlight this year's Olympic host country, South Korea, and its enigmatic neighbor, North Korea. Programs will focus on the people and traditions of the two countries.

Just in time for the Opening Ceremony in Pyeongchang, the library will hold a program on the Culture and Traditions of South Korea. On February 9 from 2-3:30 pm, join Mi Ran Lee, a native Korean and Professor of Korean Studies at College of DuPage, to learn about the culture, food, holidays, and people of South Korea.

At A Journey to North Korea, Sandy Stevens, journalist and Glen Ellyn resident, will share the details of her visit to North Korea that gave her a sense of this secretive country. Visit the Glen Ellyn Library on Tuesday, February 20 from 7-8:30 pm to learn more about this mysterious country.

Each program will be held on the second floor of the Glen Ellyn Public Library. Reserve your spot for one or both of these programs by visiting https://gepl.org/adult/programming/2018-winter-olympics-the-korean-peninsula.
