Join us for a virtual discussion with cartoonist, designer and illustrator Gia-Bao (aka GB) Tran.
During the hour-long conversation, he plans to talk about being a Vietnamese American artist and son of immigrants, exploring his genealogy, and adapting to life in America.
Born in South Carolina in 1976, a year after his parents fled Vietnam, Tran is best known for his graphic novel, Vietnamerica: A Family's Journey, which won a Society of Illustrators Gold Medal and was included in Time's list of Top 10 Graphic Memoirs.
In telling his family’s story, he finds his own place in this saga of hardship and heroism. Vietnamerica is a visually stunning portrait of survival, escape and reinvention - and of the gift of the American immigrants’ dream, passed on to their children. It's an unforgettable story of family revelation and reconnection - and a new graphic-memoir classic.
