The reading list is constructed by recommendations from Nguyen, who also is a professor of American Studies (see the interview with him in The New York Times Book Review from January 30, 2017: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/30/books/review/viet-thanh-nguyen-by-the-book.html). We will begin with Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison, then read Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston, and conclude with Nguyen's The Sympathizer. The discussions will be moderated by Jenny Emery Davidson, the Library's executive director. 4 – February 21: Woman Warrior and The Sympathizer We’ll discuss the rest of Woman Warrior and begin discussing The Sympathizer, focusing on just the first chapter of Nguyen’s novel.
