Author John Stickler and his wife, fine artist Soma Han, will be signing and chopping their book, Land of Morning Calm: Korean Culture Then and Now, during the L.A. Times Festival of Books.
The 32-page picture book presents 19 facets of Korean life, from the symbolic national flag to the preparation of kimchi. Now in its second edition, it is published by Shen’s Books, a national distributor of cultural and educational materials for young readers. Reviews are posted on the Internet at www.amazon.com and www.shens.com.
The national children’s magazine Skipping Stones selected Land of Morning Calm to receive its 2005 Honor Award as an exceptional title in the multicultural and international category. Soma Han previously illustrated a book of Korean proverbs, Tigers, Frogs and Rice Cakes, also from Shen’s Books. The Sticklers live in Southern California.
