Author talk: Meet Thi Bui in person!
About: The One Book, One College (OBOC) Program and the LA Valley College Library are proud to present a talk with Thi Bui, the author and artist of LAVC’s 2019-2020 OBOC selection, The Best We Could Do. Ms. Bui’s graphic novel chronicles one family’s life in war-torn South Vietnam and eventual escape, as refugees, to the United States. The book is an exploration in words and pictures of an immigrant family’s hopes for the future and journey into the past. Ms. Bui is a Vietnamese-American, art instructor, and Caldecott winner. After the talk, the author will sign copies of her books.
