Mayo County Library and Mayo Intercultural Action are delighted to present a reading by author and Human Rights activist Pascal Khoo Thwe.

Pascal Khoo Thwe’s memoir From the Land of the Green Ghosts is remarkable for many reasons, but what makes it of particular interest is its description of the human rights catastrophe in Burma and its moving chronicle of the author’s route to becoming a human rights activist.  His autobiography traces his incredible journey from an isolated Burmese hill tribe through his trials as a human rights activist and to his admission to Cambridge University where he became the first Burmese to gain an honours degree in English Literature.
