Tuesday Noon – Andrew Lam

Tuesday Noon: Andrew Lam—Reflections on the Vietnamese Diaspora

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.
