Please join the Alumni & Friends Book Club for a discussion of On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong. “This is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family’s history that began before he was born. It tells of Vietnam, of the lasting impact of war, and of his family’s struggle to forge a new future.” (
