This event, open to all UConn Avery Point students, faculty and staff, as well as the local community, will have two parts: It will begin with a brief presentation, by professor Lynne Rogers and her Asian American Literature students, on the general themes in The Refugees and an overview of the history of Vietnamese refugees entering the United States. Participants will then discuss “War Years,” one of the stories in The Refugees; this will be facilitated by Laurie Wolfley and Lynne Rogers, with the help of students in Wolfley’s English courses. Light refreshments will be served.
