Book club: Last Night I Dreamed of Peace

FVH April Book Club

This is a Vietnamese focussed Book Club where we discuss books either written by Vietnamese authors or books based in Vietnam. We encourage women and men of all nationalities to join and be part of this evening book club that meets every first Thursday in a month. This activity is organised by Friends of Vietnam Heritage.

The book we are discussing this month is Last Night I Dreamed of Peace a Diary of Dang Thuy Tram. She was a 24 year old doctor when she went to work in a Vietcong battlefield hospital and just 27 when she was killed. Her voice lives on through these pages. We look forward to an interesting discussion.
