Nguyen Ngoc Bao will be the guest of Hennepin County Library’s “Author Talk” on April 16, 2:00 p.m. at the Southdale Library, 7001 York Avenue S., Edina, MN 55435.
Nguyen and his family escaped the Communist regime of Vietnam in 1975 and relocated to Houston, Texas. His book of short essays, journal entries and editorials “Chuyen Xa Gan” (“Stories Near and Far”) is described as “substantive research” on both classic and contemporary Vietnamese literature.
The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Augsburg Park Library and the Vietnamese Culture and Science Association – Minnesota. For more information call 952-847-5900 or visit www.hclib.org.
