Viet Thanh Nguyen (03.23.2018)

VIET THANH NGUYEN, Pulitzer Prize winner, was born in Viet Nam and came to the United States as a refugee at the age of four. The feeling of being an outsider or “other” defines Nguyen’s writing. In honor of Buffalo’s proud record of welcoming more than 2,000 refugees this year alone from around the globe and ranking 8th in the country for the number of Syrian families who have resettled here in our community, we will read Nguyen’s latest book, The Refugees. This beautiful collection of short stories explores universal and urgent themes of love and family, the histories we hold within us and the people “we can’t afford to forget.” (Photograph of Viet Thanh Nguyen courtesy of The Tuesday Agency)
