Join us this month to discuss Thanhha Lai’s National Book Award-winning novel, Inside Out & Back Again. Learn more about the history of the Vietnam War through 10-year-old Ha, who flees from Vietnam to Alabama after the fall of Saigon. Lai’s award-winning, semi-autobiographical debut novel is “enlightening, poignant and unexpectedly funny.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Discuss the book with other families, ask New-York Historical curator questions, and discover related primary sources from our collection.
