HFM to Host Book Signing for Author of "The Impossible Dream: Memoirs of a Refugee Boy"
Holy Family Memorial will host a special book signing featuring HFM Family Medicine provider Xa Xiong, MD to celebrate the publication of his first book, “The Impossible Dream: Memoirs of a Refugee Boy.”
The event will be held on Monday, April 4 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. in the HFM Medical Center Atrium. The event is free and open to the public.
In his book, Dr. Xiong recounts his family’s escape from Laos during the Vietnam War and his time spent in the Thai refugee camps as a young boy. The book follows Dr. Xiong’s journey to the land of opportunity—the United States—where his family left everything they had behind them in search of a better future. You will discover how Dr. Xiong’s determination, hard work and faith helped him achieve the promise he made years ago to his beloved brother of becoming a medical doctor and healing others.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase in the HFM Medical Center gift shop and day of the event. All proceeds from these purchases will go towards the HFM Medical Mission Fund which supports medical missionary trips.
