Author Vu Tran

Cop drives into Vegas, hunting down his ex-wife, who's now married to a Vietnamese crime boss. New movie? Nope, it's the plot for Vu Tran's novel. The UNLV writing fellow talks about his latest projects. He takes an introspective look at being a Vietnamese immigrant, and how it influences his writing. And he tells us what he really thinks about the local Chinatown.

Vu Tran will be speaking with UNLV writing fellow, Maile Chapman, on Thursday, April 15 at 7 p.m. at UNLV's Barrick Museum Auditorium. This is a Black Mountain Institute event, in partnership with UNLV's Department of English.

Guest:
Vu Tran, Schaeffer Writing Fellow, UNLV

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
