2016 Pulitzer Prize winner, Viet Thanh Nguyen, presents The Sympathizer. The reading will be followed by an interview with Giller winner, Dr. Vincent Lam. Bert Archer will host.

“Nguyen, born in Vietnam but raised in the United States, brings a distinct perspective to the war and its aftermath. His book fills a void in the literature, giving voice to the previously voiceless while it compels the rest of us to look at the events of 40 years ago in a new light.” – Philip Caputo, The New York Times
