LitFest: Viet Thanh Nguyen

May 19, 2021 - May 19, 2021 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Virtual Event by City of Asylum

Vietnamese-American novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen joins City of Aslyum live to discuss The Committed, his much-anticipated sequel to his Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Sympathizer. This newest novel is fierce in tone, capacious, witty, sharp, and deeply researched. The Committed marks not just a sequel to its groundbreaking predecessor, but a sum total accumulation of a life devoted to Vietnamese American history and scholarship. It asks questions central to Vietnamese everywhere—and to our very species: How do we live in the wake of seismic loss and betrayal?
