Former editor of New America Media and commentator on NPR’s All Things Considered Andrew Lam has made his name as a journalist and a short fiction writer. His experiences as a Vietnamese refugee reverberates through his work, and characters who fled Vietnam and made new lives in California populate his imagination. The PEN Open Book Award–winning author of Perfume Dreams: Reflections on the Vietnamese Diaspora and East Eats West: Writing in Two Hemispheres visits Scripps for a conversation.


This program is presented in partnership with the Scripps Humanities Institute.
