Creative Risks: A Conversation with Viet Thanh Nguyen & Thrity Umrigar

Creative Risks: A Conversation with Viet Thanh Nguyen & Thrity Umrigar

Jul 23, 2021 7-8 p.m.
Location: Zoom
Categories: Community
In this discussion between Pulitzer Prize-winner Viet Thanh Nguyen and best-selling author Thrity Umrigar, we will explore the risks of creativity and creation, whether it is experimenting with a new genre or form, engaging personal or political material, fighting to dismantle systems of oppression, or co-writing a children's book with your son. From Viet Thanh Nguyen's most recent work, The Committed, to Thrity Umrigar's forthcoming novel Honor, to both authors' published children's books, we will explore the intersections of their writing and learn why creativity is a risk we should take.
