Thi Bui explores her family’s story of migration and immigration in The Best We Could Do. She depicts the life her parents had in Vietnam and the life she now has in the United States. She shows us the value of exploring our own story to discover the importance of ethnic identity, nationality, and family.
You're invited to read and participate in this year’s Common Reading Experience! Join us on September 23 as Alan Headbloom, ’75, and LaRhonda Richarson, ’21, lead students and alumni in a conversation about the book and the opportunity it gives us to better understand our own stories and the stories of others.
The Best We Could Do is sold on Amazon and is available at local bookstores or libraries upon request.
