A Conversation with Mr. Lac Su

Please join us for A Conversation with Lac Su in the Main Theater: Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013 at 6:00-7:30pm and  Thursday, October 24th, 2013 at 9:30-11:00 am.

In his powerful memoir of growing up as a Vietnamese immigrant in LA in the 80’s,  Lac Su shares his personal struggles with assimilation, gangs, poverty, and an abusive parent with humor and honesty. His struggles and experiences are ones that many of our students deeply identify with. Selections from his book can be read alone, and raise issues related to history, immigration, political science, sociology and psychology, and parenting. We hope that you will attend this exciting event!
