Kao Kalia Yang: Presentation on her Novel

Kao Kalia Yang: Presentation on her novel, The Latehomecomer

On October 1, 2009, the Dean's Engaged Leaders program in the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences hosted a presentation by noted Hmong author, Kao Kalia Yang. Her critically acclaimed memoir , "The Latehomecomer," recalls her family's flight from Laos across the Mekong to refugee camps in Thailand and ultimately to St. Paul, Minnesota. Her poignant story sheds light on a story shared by the majority of Hmong in the United States.
