This Saturday, the Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network (DVAN) and Asian American Writers’ Workshop present “A Discussion Among Writers,” co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU. Writers from the US, Canada, Australia, France, and Indonesia will come together for a series of conversations in front of a live audience. Participants include Amy Quan Barry, Matty Huynh, Violet Kupersmith, Thanhha Lai, Hieu Minh Nguyen, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Vu Tran, Monique Truong, and Abbigail N. Rosewood, with discussions moderated by Lawrence-Minh Bùi Davis, Mimi Khúc, and Isabelle Thuy Pelaud.
The writers were invited last summer to “participate in a writing residency, foster the Vietnamese literary community, and stage a series of conversations.” They hope to continue these conversations on Saturday, focusing on Vietnamese writing and diaspora. The event is free, with a $5 suggested donation. More information can be found here, and guests can RSVP here.
When: Saturday, March 23, 5:00–7:30 pm
Where: The People’s Forum, 320 West 37th Street, Midtown, Manhattan
