The Saving Grace of Spring Rolls: A Story of Food, Place and Family

May 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Join Virginia Humanities Research Fellow Kim O’Connell for a talk on her research using her own story of mixed-race heritage to explore Vietnamese immigrants and refugees who came to Virginia in the wake of the Vietnam War. Connecting food and culture, spring rolls are used as a symbol throughout her work to represent determination, heritage and healing. The subject complements the Library’s current exhibition, New Virginians: 1619-2019 & Beyond, a Legacy Project of the 2019 Commemoration.
