A Conversation with Line Papin at UC Berkeley

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 French, The Dept of English, The Francophone Studies Working group, The Global Vietnam Studies Working Group, Villa Albertine, The Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network (DVAN)
