Viet Thanh Nguyen Discusses 'The Refugees' says
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “The Sympathizer” comes a new collection of stories exploring questions of immigration, identity, love, and family, imbued with Nguyen’s great gift for writing.

The second piece of fiction by a major new voice in American letters, "The Refugees" is a beautifully written and sharply observed book about the aspirations of those who leave one country for another, and the relationships and desires for self-fulfillment that define our lives.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required. Parking in the Central Library garage will be available for $6 after 5 p.m. This event will be recorded for future podcast.

Viet Thanh Nguyen was born in Vietnam and raised in America. He is the author of the bestselling and award-winning novel The Sympathizer. He is also the author of the nonfiction books Nothing Ever Dies and Race and Resistance.
