Vietnamese-American memoirist and humanitarian Le Ly Hayslip tells her incredible story about surviving the horrors of Vietnam, translating those memories to the page and striving to change the world. Her first memoir, "When Heaven and Earth Changed Places: A Vietnamese Woman's Journey from War to Peace," chronicles her experiences as a young girl growing up during the Vietnam War. It was adapted by Oliver Stone into the groundbreaking "Heaven & Earth" war drama starring Tommy Lee Jones. The third film in Stone's Vietnam War trilogy, "Heaven & Earth" followed "Platoon" and "Born on the Fourth of July." Her second book, "Child of War, Woman of Peace," continues her life story into the United States. As a humanitarian, Hayslip is the founder of two charitable organizations providing emergency assistance to the needy in Vietnam: East Meets West Foundation and Global Village Foundation.
