The Uncrushable Rose: A Memoir from Concentration Camp to Becoming a Free Woman

Come see our very own Bambi Shen speak at the KC Public Library, Central Branch. 

In her memoir, Bambi reflects on her birth in Saigon, her childhood in a Japanese concentration camp, and her life of survival at the crossroads of world events: WWII, the Chinese Civil War, and the Vietnam War.  She struggled with her mother's disappointment that Shen was born female, moved to the United States to study, and twice entered marriages that reflected her low self-esteem.  But by discovering her personal strengths Shen became a model of contemporary true grit. 

Shen is a Kansas City businesswoman, author, teacher, international tour director, public speaker, interpreter, and co-founder of a nonprofit charitable organization.
