Library Group Study Rooms

How to Use the Library Group Study Rooms
  • Study & Collaborate - The group study rooms are available to groups of 2 or more Golden West College students. A student may reserve the room for up to 2 hours per day via the online form (see QR code below).
  • Brain Food - Snacks and drinks with lids are welcome! However, when you're really hungry or eating anything smelly or messy, please enjoy them outside of the library.
  • Be Considerate - The rooms are, unfortunately, not soundproof, so please be conscious of your group's noise level. When your group is getting ready to head out, make sure you leave the room in the same condition you found it.

2016 Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Viet Thanh Nguyen Lecture & Book Signing

THE SYMPATHIZERby Viet Thanh Nguyen

Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction

“A gripping spy novel, an astute exploration of extreme politics, and a moving love story. The Sympathizer explores a life between two worlds and examines the legacy of the Vietnam War in literature, film, and the wars we fight today.” — From Publisher

GWC Mainstage Theater
5:30 – 7:30 p.m.



About the Author:
Viet Thanh Nguyen is the Aerol Arnold Chair of English and Professor of English and American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California. Nguyen was born in Buon Me Thuot, Vietnam in 1971, the son of immigrants from North Vietnam who moved south in 1954. After the fall of Saigon, in 1975, his family fled to the United States. Nguyen’s family first settled in Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania, which was one of four American camps that accommodated refugees from Vietnam. His family later moved to San Jose, California, where they opened up a Vietnamese grocery store, one of the first of its kind in the area. While growing up in San Jose, Nguyen attended St. Patrick’s School and Bellarmine College Preparatory from which he graduated.
Nguyen briefly attended the University of California Riverside and UCLA before finally deciding to finish his studies at the University of California, Berkeley, where in May 1992 he graduated from and obtained both a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in English, and another B.A. degree in Ethnic Studies. Nguyen also received his Ph.D. in English from UC Berkeley in May 1997. In 1997 he moved to Los Angeles for a teaching position as an assistant professor at the University of Southern California in both the English Department, and in the American Studies and Ethnicity Department. In 2003, he became an associate professor in the two departments. In addition to teaching and writing, Nguyen also serves as cultural critic-at-large for The Los Angeles Times and is an editor of diaCRITICS, a blog for the Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network.
