Thursday, June 11th, 6:30—7:30 PM

Gary Sousa is a history teacher at Tabor Academy and traveled to Vietnam on a study tour with a number of other educators. His six-week trip began in Hanoi and Sapa on the Chinese border and continued south along the coast including Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang, Ho Chi Minh City, and the Mekong Delta before flying into Siem Reap, Cambodia and Angkor Wat. Along the way, he took cooking classes, went scuba diving, crawled the tunnels of Cu Chi, learned how to cross the street, ate fried tarantula, and slept on the floor of an overnight bus. While elements of his talk will touch upon Vietnam’s ancient origins, his primary focus will begin with Vietnam’s colonial history and extend through the American War into its modern day emergence onto the international stage.

This program is in conjunction with our Community Read program of reading The Mountains Sing by Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai.
