K-16 educators are invited to join the Asian Studies Center for this free presentation and curriculum workshop on Thanhha Lai's "Inside Out & Back Again." Lai's award-winning book of poems chronicles the Vietnam War through the eyes of 10 year-old Ha, whose family flees Saigon for the promise of a better life in the United States. The hardships endured by Ha and her family during the war fade into the past as they struggle to adjust to a new way of life in America—one that is often at odds with the promise of their new country. Act 48 hours available.
