      EVENT DETAILS
      Viet Thanh Nguyen & Luis Alberto Urrea in Conversation

      Viet Thanh Nguyen was born in Vietnam and came to the U.S. in 1975. His remarkable debut novel, The Sympathizer, won the Pulitzer Prize and made the finalist list for the PEN/Faulkner award. The New York Times described it as “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.”

      Born in Tijuana to a Mexican father and an American mother, Luis Urrea grew up in San Diego. He is the author of over 16 books and is the recipient of the Lanan Literary Award, and was a finalist for the Pulitzer. Urrea’s novel, Into the Beautiful North has been chosen for hundreds of community reads, and is on the list of the NEA’s Big Read program.
