Memory, experience and imagination in the works of Lao and Hmong American authors
This event provides a unique forum for Lao and Hmong American authors to discuss their work and intellectual endeavors. The writers, Kao Kalia Yang, Bryan Thao Worra and Thavisouk Phrasavath will reflect on their work before joining a larger conversation with the audience. The program presents a critical but engaging exploration of the role of memory, experience and imagination in each author’s writings against the backdrop of the Vietnam War and its aftermath, global migration, refugees, the diaspora, and life in America. The talk will locate Lao and Hmong Americans as part of the larger American story, featuring voices not often highlighted at the Library of Congress.
