A Reading & Reception
March 6, 2014
Social Room, VCMC
Carol Wilder’s illumination Crossing the Street in Hanoi enriches us on every page with its seductive mix of storytelling, philosophy and insights into both Vietnam and the United States. Wilder’s crowning achievement, and the reason for her book to attract a wide audience, is that once and for all she unifies the three designations of Vietnam: the war, the era, and finally the county itself.”
– Peter Davis, director, Academy Award-wining Vietnam documentary Hearts and Minds
