When I started my research earlier this year on my third biography for Morgan Reynolds, a publisher of fine YA nonfiction, I wasn’t prepared for the sense of grace and humanity I encountered as I read stacks of books and newspapers about Aung San Suu Kyi, a political prisoner of Myanmar (fka Burma).
After Myanmar’s recent election, Suu Kyi has been released. What about the thousands of other political prisoners still being held? Will her release last this time? Will she be safe?
