Thi Bui was born in Vietnam three months before the end of the Vietnam War and came to the U.S. as one of the refugees of the Seventies. In what Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls “a book to break your heart and heal it,” The Best We Could Do brings to life Thi Bui’s journey of understanding, and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past. Join us and delve into this intimate portrayal of Thi’s family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.
