The Histories We Hold Within Us: Viet Thanh Nguyen Workshop
In anticipation of his BABEL visit, during this workshop young writers will create inspired by the collection of short stories, The Refugees, by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Viet Thanh Nguyen. The Refugees explores universal and urgent themes of love and family, the histories we hold within us, and the people “we can’t afford to forget.” Encouraged to consider their family/cultural histories, participants will consider how the pasts they don’t remember nevertheless run through their veins.
This workshop is FREE, aimed at young students aged 12–18, and limited to 12 participants.
