Laura Ling and her friend were sentenced to 12 years of hard labor in one of North Korea's prison camps, after being detained while filming a documentary near the country's border.
They were later released thanks to a special visit by former President Bill Clinton, who traveled to the country to speak with its leader Kim Jong Il.
Ling will host a presentation, titled “The Journey of Hope in North Korea,” on her experiences in the country on Oct. 2 at Anne Arundel Community College. The presentation is free and sponsored by the college's Office of Student Engagement.
The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. Oct 2., in the David S. Jenkins Gymnasium at Anne Arundel Community College, 101 College Parkway in Arnold.
