Monique Truong

Fiction Reading: Monique Truong

Kirkus Reviews called Monique Truong’s first book, The Book of Salt, “a tour de force,” and accurately predicted, “Truong should take the literate world by storm.” Her other books include Bitter in the Mouth and The Sweetest Fruits, forthcoming from Viking Books. She is also an essayist and a lyricist, working in collaboration with the composer Joan La Barbara. She has been a Guggenheim Fellow, U.S.-Japan Creative Artists Fellow in Tokyo, Visiting Writer at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, and Princeton University’s Hodder Fellow. She lives in Brooklyn.

The reading will be followed by refreshments.
