In February, we'll be discussing "The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir" by Kao Kalia Yang, which is the 2019 La Crosse Reads book selection. 

About the book from the National Endowment for the Arts: 

"Kao Kalia Yang is a Hmong-American author, filmmaker, public speaker, and natural storyteller. 'The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir' (Coffee House Press, 2008) is the first memoir written by a Hmong-American to be published with national distribution. Driven to tell her family's story—and the story of the Hmong people—Yang wrote it as a "love letter" to her grandmother whose spirit held her family together through their imprisonment in Laos, their harrowing escape across the Mekong River and into a refugee camp in Thailand, their immigration to Minnesota when Yang was only six years old, and their transition to a hard life in America."

Books 'n Brunch is paid for with a grant from the Gertrude Salzer Gordon Trust.
