When: Mon., April 9, 7:30 p.m. 2018

Tonight, Viet Thanh Nguyen will be discussing his heartwarming, New York Times best-selling novel at Carnegie Music Hall. Nguyen’s most recent work, The Refugees, is a collection of stories about immigrants, and the culture shock and confusion of relocating to a new and unfamiliar place. It covers all aspects of immigration, from a Vietnamese refugee coming to live in San Francisco with a gay couple, to a girl whose older half-sister is coming back from living in America. Nguyen encapsulates both the struggle and the journey that people of all kinds face when leaving their home country for another. -LO
