Update from book world

I had a fantastic experience on July 7th, reading from Her Own Vietnam for a lively crowd at Busboys and Poets restaurant in Washington, DC. The book talk was hosted by DC’s premier independent bookstore, Politics & Prose, which runs a jewel of a bookstore inside Busboys.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the event.

As a writer, you spend most of your time alone behind a computer. It was a delight to talk about my book with a room full of interested – and interesting – people.
