May 22: Vietnamese war orphan speaks at S. Walter Stewart

Author of Lost and Found: Orphan 32 Goes Home

Two-year-old Thanh Campbell was one of 57 war orphans rescued from Vietnam in 1975. As part of Operation Babylift, these children were flown out of Saigon, brought to Toronto, and adopted into Canadian families.

They were brought back together nearly 30 years later. For an orphan, meeting the other war orphans was the closest thing to “family.” Little did Thanh know, he’d get more than he bargained for. Orphan 32 is an inspirational story about love, life, family, and a journey of self-discovery.

Thanh shares his story at the Toronto launch for his new children’s illustrated book, Lost and Found: Orphan 32 Goes Home.

He speaks at S. Walter Stewart Library, 170 Memorial Park Ave., on May 22 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
