About Loung Ung: Loung Ung was only 5 years old when the Khmer Rouge stormed into her native city of Phnom Penh. Four years later, in one of the bloodiest episodes of the 20th century, some two million Cambodians – out of a population of seven million – had died at the hands of the infamous Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge regime. Among the genocide victims were both Loung’s parents, two sisters, and 20 other relatives.  Today, Loung has made over 30 trips back to Cambodia.  As an author, lecturer, and activist, she has dedicated 20 years to promoting equality, human rights, and justice in her native land and worldwide.  When she is not traveling or writing, Loung is a food taster at a trio of RESTAURANT, BAR, AND BREWERY, she co-owns in Cleveland, Ohio.
