Thi Bui appears at Powell’s City of Books on Monday June 5, 2017 at 7:30 PM to sign The Best We Could Do.
The Best We Could Do (Abrams) by debut author Thi Bui is an intimate, poignant graphic novel portraying one family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves. The Best We Could Do brings to life Bui’s journey of understanding and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.
