A Conversation with Line Papin at Stanford University

Join us for a reading and Q&A with the French Vietnamese author Line Papin to discuss The Girl Before Her, her debut English translation. The event will be moderated by writer and journalist Mel Kritikopoulos. Part meditation, part family history, part message in a bottle to her younger selves, Papin’s lyrical work of autofiction explores what it takes to embrace one’s multiracial, transnational self by making peace with the generations of women who’ve come before.

Sponsors: The Dept of English, Villa Albertine, The Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network (DVAN)
