Artist and author Thi Bui will speak about her debut graphic novel memoir, The Best We Could Do. It is an intimate look at one family's journey from their war-torn home in Vietnam to their new lives in America. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.Artist Website
