May 27: American Library in Paris Hosts Reading with Vietnamese Women Writers

 

The Library is pleased to present a collective reading and presentation called “She Who Has No Master(s)” showcasing nine women writers of Vietnamese descent, now located in the U.S., Canada, and France, who will come together and read from a collective project exploring themes such as displacement, silence, memory and trauma, repercussions of war and colonialism. The writing collective consists of acclaimed and award-winning authors and academics encompassing a range of literary disciplines, including fiction, poetry, nonfiction, performance, and criticism.

The event will begin with a brief introductory statement by 2016 Pulitzer Prize winner, Viet Thanh Nguyen. The first half of the reading presentation will include a multi-voiced poetic reading of new collaborative work by the nine women writers of the collective. The event will close with an audience Q&A.
