Book Club - The Sympathizer

May 25 2017 - 7:00pm

The book for May is The Sympathizer, by Viet Thanh Nguyen.

The Sympathizer is recipient of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Set as the flashback in the coerced confession of a political prisoner, the book tells the story of the South Vietnamese Government in 1975 and subsequent events in American exile in Los Angles, through the eyes of a half-Vietnamese, half-French undercover communist agent.

We will meet on Thursday, May 25th at the home of Sue Kuder. Please email her at if you plan to attend so she can organize the food.

Can't make it this month? Read the next book and join us in June!
