Ei Pencilo’s new book “Burma’s Spring Revolution: 100 Days of Darkness” was published earlier this year in the Korean language. It was the first book about post-coup Burma to be published in South Korea. “This is so meaningful for the people in Burma who are dealing with the military coup. It is also very important to bring those experiences to the people abroad who don’t exactly know about the situation in Burma,” Gim Shi Yeo, Pencilo’s Korean book publisher, told DVB. Pencilo hopes to soon publish the Burmese language version of “Burma’s Spring Revolution: 100 Days of Darkness” and distribute e-books and physical copies to people inside Burma. All proceeds from sales of the book will go toward supporting the fight against the junta and its army in Burma, Pencilo told DVB.
DVB Reads will feature Ei Pencilo discussing her new book in an upcoming podcast episode. Stay tuned.
