Congratulations to Kao
I have been working on a series of testimonial ads for the St Paul School District showing former students. Many of these students have faced difficult odds, but have gone on to do great things. One of these students, Kao Kalia Yang, born into a Hmong refugee camp, went on to write "The Late Homecomer'. This past Saturday, our paths crossed again. While covering the Minnesota Book Awards, I saw Kao receive both the Peoples Choice and Best Nonfiction Memoir for her book.
