The Stacks Book Club – July 2021

We are trying something new on The Stacks for July, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. This month we’re reading a gorgeous graphic memoir called The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui.

In her debut book, Thi Bui combines stunning illustrations with the story of her family’s immigration to The United States from Vietnam in the aftermath of The Vietnam War. The books spans generations of Bui’s family and ultimately settles in on Bui’s relationship with her parents and the country of her birth. The Best We Could Do is a book that functions both in a global political capacity and in the minutiae of our most interpersonal relationships.

We will be discussing The Best We Could Do on Wednesday, July 28th. You can find out who our guest will be for that discussion by listening to the podcast on July 7th. If you’d like even more discussion around the book consider joining The Stacks Pack on Patreon and participating in The Stacks’ monthly virtual book club.
