"The Girl in the Picture: The Story of Kim Phuc,
the Photograph, and the Vietnam War"

Written by Denise Chong, a Prince George native and UNBC honorary degree recipient

FREE Public Readings

At age nine Kim Phuc was photographed, running naked up a road with her skin on fire and screaming in agony.

Her photograph is one of the most unforgettable images of the last century and helped turn public opinion around the Vietnam War. It has recently been compared to the impact of the photo of the young boy washed onto the beach and the Syrian refugee crisis.

Join author Denise Chong as she shares the making of the book, The Girl in the Picture, including a slide show presentation of research photos, photos of Kim as a young girl, and more.
