Facing Loss: Author Brenda Paik Sunoo

On our July 24, 2006 Subversity show, we talked with freelance journalist, photographer and grief counselor Brenda Paik Sunoo, about her new book, Seaweed and Shamans (2006), a memoir of her life since the loss of her 16 year-old son, Tommy, while he was playing basketball at University High School in Irvine, California, in 1994. See press release with links to more information about the book and author.

Sunoo's book contains not only her reflections on dealing with a terrible loss, but also excerpts from her son's diary entries and artwork.

A former editor of the English-edition of Korea Times, Sunoo now lives in Hanoi, Vietnam. She is the founder of Compassion at Work, which gives advice to human resources personnel on workers' grief. To hear the audio of the show with Brenda Sunoo, click here: .
