Join the Social Justice Book Club in July. We’re reading our first graphic novel: The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui. It will be a great, quick read.
This beautifully illustrated and emotional story is an evocative memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for the past, and an intimate and poignant graphic novel portraying one family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam from debut author Thi Bui. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.
