Welcome to the eighth and final ÁCCENTED show of the third season!

Childrens’ author Hanh Bui and 2021 National Youth Poet Laureate Alexandra Huynh will join hosts Viet Thanh Nguyen and Philip Nguyen for this episode titled, “Writing Myself Into Existence: Creating Reflections of Our Lived Experiences.”

In the first segment of our show, our hosts will speak with childrens’ author Hanh Bui about her newest book, The Yellow Ao Dai and her upcoming title to be released in 2024, “Ánh’s New Word.” They will discuss creating characters and narratives that Hanh could identify with and who looked like her for future generations.

The second segment will be with 2021 National Youth Poet Laureate Alexandra Huynh. As the fifth person to hold this title, we will explore her love for poetry, her journey to being recognized, what she’s up to now, and what the future holds.

The final segment of our show will bring all our guests and hosts in open conversation with one another as they answer questions from our live audience about their work, process, lives, etc.
