One Book, One San Diego 2022 Virtual Teen Author Event with Trung Le Nguyen

Tuesday, December 13, 2022 from 9:50 AM to 10:50 AM

The event will be livestreamed on YouTube and Facebook. Links will be provided in your confirmation email and event reminders. 

Please join KPBS and our partners for a special live virtual event with Trung Le Nguyen, author of our 2022 One Book, One San Diego teen selection, "The Magic Fish."

A 2021 winner of two Harvey Awards and named one of the best books of the year by The New York Public Library, “The Magic Fish" is a beautifully illustrated YA graphic novel that deals with the complexity of family and how stories can bring us together. It follows the life of a young, queer Vietnamese boy struggling to share his sexuality while teaching his mother English through fairy tales. "The Magic Fish" tackles tough subjects in a way that is accessible to readers of all ages, and teaches us that no matter what—we can all have our own happy endings.

One Book, One San Diego is a partnership, led by KPBS, with the San Diego Public Library, the San Diego County Library, San Diego State University, One Book Sin Fronteras and more than 30 others. For more information about One Book, One San Diego, please visit: or One Book, One San Diego on Facebook.

One Book One San Diego is funded by the Linden Root Dickinson Foundation, the Dr. Seuss Fund at the San Diego Foundation, the Seth Sprague Educational and Charitable Foundation, the Payne Family Foundation, Kaiser Permanente, Francis Parker School, the City of San Diego, Lloyd Pest Control, and Compass Charter Schools.
