SummaryJoin us for a discussion of the 2019 Seattle Reads featured work, "The Best We Could Do" by Thi Bui.
Book Description"The Best We Could Do" is a haunting graphic memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for a simpler past. Bui documents her family's escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves in America.

This is one of the three community reading events hosted in partnership with Vietnamese Friendship Association. The intention behind this partnership is to create space for refugees, immigrants, people of color and allies to discuss the pertinent themes and issues which Thi Bui raises in her best-selling graphic novel.
