About this event

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and USC Professor Viet Thanh Nguyen joins the acclaimed writer Naomi Hirahara for a special afternoon conversation.

The two authors will dive into a discussion of Nguyen’s 2023 memoir, A Man of Two Faces—a formally inventive mix of history, personal reflection, and the story of his family’s forced migration from Vietnam to the United States. With a wry and ironic sense of humor, Nguyen offers us a tender view into his family’s history; the truth, ironies, and lies behind the so-called American Dream; and how he has come to understand his role as a writer at this specific moment in American life.
