Summer reading: The Displaced

Book cover for The Displaced
The Displaced: Refugee Writers on Refugee Lives
Edited by Viet Thanh Nguyen

In Spring 2019, the LEP Global Book Club read The Displaced, an anthology of personal stories by refugee writers, collected and edited by author Viet Thanh Nguyen. Reading their stories allows us greater insight into the often painful realities of millions of people in our current moment, enhancing our empathy towards others, while also challenging us to reflect on questions of our own identities, belonging, and our understandings of home.
