Join us as we welcome back the Korean Spirit and Culture Promotion Project for another fascinating program!  Learn about King Sejong, a truly enlightened monarch from the 15th century Korea.  His motto was "The duty of a king is to love his people. That is all."  With this belief, King Sejong initiated numerous cultural achievements and scienfitic inventions to improve the welfare of his people.  To spread the benefits of such accomplishments, he enhanced the moveable metal type printing technology and printed large runs of books.  His most important contribution was the invention of the Korean Alphabet Hangeul, which he created to eradicate illiteracy in the country.

Traditional Korean refreshments will be served.

Registration is required and begins in January 2020.
