Laura Ling + Lisa Ling signing
This past weekend at GR2, we conducted a signing with sisters, Laura Ling and Lisa Ling. I had to introduce them without much planning, and I kept it simple. But I could have offered a few insights on the book and I didn't. But if you haven't read it yet, know that the book isn't only a tale of being incarcerated and charged in North Korea. That's the obvious part. So it's one part true crime. The next? The writings flip flop from Laura to Lisa and back. What was Lisa doing to get help get Laura out? What did Laura think was going out in the USA to help her out? Finally, the third part? Romance! Iain below is Laura husband who wrote letter after letter. He may not being signing books, but he gets some props. You can also read about Laura Ling's experience in Giant Robot 66. I interviewed her there.
