      Birds of Paradise Lost: Andrew Lam on Literature, Immigration and SF (MLF)

      Andrew Lam, Web Editor, New American Media Lam, author of a new book of short stories about Vietnamese refugees in the Bay Area, will explore the various implications of the Vietnamese diaspora in the U.S. since the Vietnam War ended and will read from his new work, a collection of 13 stories about Vietnamese immigrants who struggle to remake their lives in the Bay Area. Of Lam's latest book, writer Maxine Hong Kingston noted, "Read Andrew Lam, and bask in his love of language, and his compassion for people, both those here and those from far away. He reminds us that we have history in common; we can laugh and cry together.”
