Can the humanities address inhuman acts? This public event with Viet Thanh Nguyen, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sympathizer, will explore how we remember war and its many dimensions.

In conversation with local author Kao Kalia Yang, Nguyen will explore the topic, featuring themes from his book Nothing Ever Dies: Vietnam and the Memory of War.

Reception and book signing to follow.

MLIS created a LibGuide for this event. This guide includes a variety of resources about the Vietnam War for both adults and youth.
