1. Collective reading: Vietnamese women writers

Saturday 27 May 2017, 14:00 - 16:00

The Library is pleased to present a collective reading and presentation called "She Who Has No Master(s)" showcasing nine women writers of Vietnamese descent, now located in the U.S. and France, who will come together and read from a collective project exploring themes such as displacement, silence, memory and trauma, repercussions of war and colonialism. The writing collective consists of acclaimed and award-winning authors and academics encompassing a range of literary disciplines, including fiction, poetry, nonfiction, performance, and criticism.

The event will begin with a brief introductory statement by 2016 Pulitzer Prize winner, Viet Thanh Nguyen. The first half of the reading presentation will include a multi-voiced poetic reading of new collaborative work by the nine women writers of the collective. The second part of the event will be an individual reading by Anna Moi, author of The Butterfly's Venom (Le Venin du Papillon), recently nominated for the Ouest-France Prize. The event will close with an audience Q&A.

For more information about the "She Who Has No Master(s)" writing collective, a project of the Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network, on their website: www.dvan.org

2. Evenings with an author: Viet Thanh Nguyen, The Sympathizer and The Refugees

>Tuesday 27 June 2017, 19:30

Viet Thanh Nguyen speaks about his Pulitzer Prize-winning debut novel The Sympathizer, and his new short story collection The Refugees, which has a poignant dedication: "For all refugees, everywhere." Nguyen's stunning first novel about a spy with dual loyalties to country and himself is profound and beautifully crafted. The particular sorrow of exile and the chance of a better life in another place are themes found in both books. NPR praises The Refugees as "an urgent, wonderful collection that proves that fiction can be more than mere storytelling - it can bear witness to the lives of people who can't afford to forget."

Viet Thanh Nguyen received the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his first novel The Sympathizer, which became a New York Times bestseller. Other honors include the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction from the American Library Association, the First Novel Prize from the Center for Fiction, and a Gold Medal in First Fiction from the California Book Awards.

His other books are Nothing Ever Dies: Vietnam and the Memory of War (a finalist for the National Book Award in nonfiction) and Race and Resistance: Literature and Politics in Asian America. Nguyen is the Aerol Arnold Chair of English and professor of American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California.
