Saturday, March 26, 1 – 2 PM—Literary Discussion
New Orleans is a city with numerous distinctly rich cultures. The Vietnamese community in New Orleans is the focus of Eric Nguyen‘s revealing debut novel about an immigrant family, Things We Lost in the Water (2022) and a new documentary film by Glen Pitre that focuses on the principal church serving the community, Mary Queen of Vietnam (2022). Mark VanLandingham, a professor in Tulane’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine who has closely followed this community, moderates the conversation.
