The Refugees is DCPL's DC Reads 2018 title.

From a young Vietnamese refugee who suffers profound culture shock when he comes to live with two gay men in San Francisco, to a woman whose husband is suffering from dementia and starts to confuse her for a former lover, to a girl living in Ho Chi Minh City whose older half-sister comes back from America having seemingly accomplished everything she never will, the stories are a captivating testament to the dreams and hardships of immigration

The author will be speaking on June 1st. It's a free event but RSPV is required here: dclibrary.org/nguyen
