Distinguished Visitor Le Ly Hayslip, internationally known Vietnamese-American author, philanthropist, peace activist, and speaker 
 
Based on the experiences she and others have undergone, Le Ly Hayslip recounts the trials and tribulations of women caught in the middle of war zones. Le Ly is an internationally known Vietnamese-American author, philanthropist, peace activist and speaker. Her best-selling memoirs When Heaven and Earth Changed Places and Child of War, Woman of Peace – adapted to film by Oliver Stone as Heaven and Earth -- record her painful and ultimately triumphant journey from a traumatizing childhood in war-torn Vietnam to her new life in America. For the last 30 years, Le Ly’s goal has been to bring east and west together – to open a dialogue between the United States and Vietnam – to heal the wounds of war and re-build a ravaged nation.
  
Tea at 6:45 p.m.
