Event Description:
Harman Writer-in-Residence Monique Truong

Born in Saigon, South Vietnam, in 1968, Monique Truong is a writer based in Brooklyn, New York. Her second novel, Bitter in the Mouth (Random House, 2010), is the inaugural selection of the Ladies’ Home Journal Book Club. The novel received the Rosenthal Family Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and was named a 25 Best Fiction Books of 2010 by Barnes & Noble, a 10 Best Fiction Books of 2010 by Hudson Booksellers, and the adult fiction Honor Book by the Asian Pacific American Librarians Association.

Truong was a PEN/Robert Bingham Fellow, a Princeton University’s Hodder Fellow, a Guggenheim Fellow, and the inaugural Visiting Writer at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies. In 2015, she was a U.S.-Japan Creative Artist Fellow in Tokyo. And this Fall, will be the Sidney Harman Writer-in-Residence at Baruch College.

Truong is also an intellectual property attorney, but she hopes that you will not hold that against her. When she is not writing, which is most of the time, she cooks and takes naps. She lacks many basic life skills such as knowing how to drive a car, ride a bicycle, or read a map. She has been known to walk long distances though, especially if there is a very good bakery located at the end of that walk.

FREE & Open To The Public.
