The Idaho Humanities Council at The Well-Read Moose

Prize winning writer, Viet Thanh Nguyen, will deliver the IHC’s 16th Annual North Idaho Distinguished Humanities Lecture on Friday, October 25, 7:00 p.m., at the Coeur d’Alene Resort.
Tickets are available by calling the IHC at (208) 345-5346. General tickets are $65 and Benefactor tickets are $130. Benefactors are invited to a private pre-event reception with Nguyen at 5:00 p.m. The evening will begin with a no-host reception and silent auction at 6:00 p.m. at the Resort. Dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m., with Nguyen’s talk to follow. Nguyen’s books will be available onsite for signing afterwards.
Viet Thanh Nguyen’s writing is bold, elegant, and fiercely honest. His remarkable debut novel, The Sympathizer, won the Pulitzer Prize, was a Dayton Literary Peace Prize winner, and made the finalist list for the PEN/Faulkner award. The Pulitzer Prize citation reads, “[The Sympathizer] is a layered immigrant tale told in the wry, confessional voice of a ‘man of two minds’—and two countries, Vietnam and the United States.”
