In this new episode of our podcast Canad’AIR we invite you on a journey from Vietnam to Canada with an extraordinary great guide: Quebec writer Kim Thúy.
Kim Thúy was 10 years old when she and her family had to flee the Vietnam War in 1978. She would then become one of the “Boat People” we have read about in history books. After several months in a refugee camp in Malaysia, , her family was invited by Canada to resettle in Quebec.
Kim Thúy studied Translation and Law. She worked as a seamstress, interpreter, lawyer, restaurant owner and food writer for radio and television. Today, she lives in Montreal, dedicates herself to writing and to her main mission: shedding some light on the darkness of this world. Her secret weapons? Poetry, humour and love!
Kim Thúy speaks about the pain of exile and the warmth of being welcomed, about strong women, about the taste of freedom …. But also about the best marinade in the world!
Ready for take-off? Let’s go!
