Winner of the Pulitzer Prize

Montclair Literary Festival: A Man of Two Faces

Join us on Tuesday, April 30th at 7PM as Succeed2gether’s Montclair Literary Festival Co-sponsored with AAPI Montclair welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen in conversation about A Man of Two Faces.

With insight, humor, formal invention, and lyricism, in A Man of Two Faces Viet Thanh Nguyen rewinds the film of his own life. He expands the genre of personal memoir by acknowledging larger stories of refugeehood, colonization, and ideas about Vietnam and America, writing with his trademark sardonic wit and incisive analysis, as well as a deep emotional openness about his life as a father and a son.

Profound in its emotions and brilliant in its thinking about cultural power, A Man of Two Faces explores the necessity of both forgetting and of memory, the promises America so readily makes and breaks, and the exceptional life story of one of the most original and important writers working today.

Purchase tickets here. Tickets to hear Viet Thanh Nguyen in person cost $35 and include a signed copy of the book. Books will be available from our Festival partner Watchung Booksellers. More pick-up information coming soon. Viet will be signing books after the talk. Please don’t bring your own copies into the venue for signing.

This event will be held in The Sanctuary of the First Congregational Church of Montclair, 40 South Fullerton St, Montclair, 07042. If you require any special accommodations to attend, please email before the event.
