Winner of the Pulitzer Prize

Library of America | Maxine Hong Kingston & Viet Thanh Nguyen

Beginning with her stunning 1976 memoir, “The Woman Warrior,” Maxine Hong Kingston has forged a profound, richly imagined, and genre-defying narrative of the American experience from her vantage point as the daughter of Chinese immigrants. To mark publication of the new Library of America edition, Kingston joins Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Viet Thanh Nguyen, editor of the volume and her former student, for an intimate LOA Live conversation about her life and work for the Library of America.
