LitWings symbolizes uplifting literature and illuminated travel.  Literature can elevate our existence, whether through a poem by Charles Baudelaire or an essay about ancient times, and travel can shed light on our own lives. Join us as writers, photographers, and filmmakers share their work around these themes.

[From the Foreward] This exhibition is a tribute to my late father, Stanley Karnow, who not only introduced me to Vietnam, but proudly and always told me that I was carrying on his legacy. He taught me to be a critical thinker, how to write, and to be a story-teller. Only recently, looking through his papers do I now see his tireless work ethic, which I strive to emulate.
