SHARED: Stories Told by Overseas Vietnamese [PRE-ORDER]
BOOK SHIPS BY END OF 2020
BOOK DESCRIPTION REFUGENE and UNAVSA are partnering to publish a book of stories told by the overseas Vietnamese community. Our stories—our history—told by us.
SHARED will be the product of The Family Stories Project: a collaborative effort meant to be a catalyst to start meaningful conversations between generations. Shared stories. Shared heritage. We will feature select submissions in a beautiful, hardcover book to honor and preserve our heritage.
Both generations—young and old—know the importance of preserving our families' stories, but neither know how or when to start these discussions. By sharing our experiences with each other, this book is another step towards bridging generational gaps and will serve as a historical resource that preserves our families’ wisdom for generations.
PRE-ORDER NOTES Books were originally planned to ship on August 1, 2020. However, due to delays caused by COVID-19 we have extended story submissions through October 1, 2020 and will ship books by the end of the year. All proceeds from pre-order sales will support the UNAVSA non-profit organization.
STORY SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED THROUGH OCTOBER 1, 2020.
