Ocean Vuong's writing takes us through the avenues of mythology, history, and memory. From his beginnings as a Vietnamese immigrant to America to his reckoning with his family and self, Vuong’s award-winning work is where the person and poet constantly intersect. Join him in a conversation about balancing the notions of guilt and pleasure in writing the coming-of-age, and finding one's voice in a world rife with narratives.

This programme is made possible with the support of the U.S. Embassy Singapore and includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
