How many times can we start over before losing ourselves? Join us for an illuminating conversation on family lost and found amidst the turmoil of cultural warfare. Governor General Award-winning author Kim Thúy will present her virtuosic novel Em. Taking inspiration from historical events, Thúy sifts through layers of pain and trauma, revealing transcendent moments of grace. Set in Saigon, an abandoned baby is rescued by a young boy – the child of a long-gone American soldier. Presenting her debut novel Swimming Back to Trout River, Linda Rui Feng sets the narrative against the backdrop of China’s cultural revolution, following one father’s journey to reunite his family before his daughter’s 12th birthday.

Interviewer: Ann Y. K. Choi
