Lao Hmong Friendship Play a hit in Minnesota

The newest short-run production of Hmong-Lao Friendship Play / Lao-Hmong Friendship Play was a success with sold-out crowds all three days from September 17-19th. Co-written by Saymoukda Vongsay and May Lee Yang, it was presented at Intermedia Arts in Minneapolis, which many will remember also was the site for the Legacies of War: Refugee Nation Twin Cities exhibit in 2010. News is expected shortly about further plans for the development of the play and future performances.

Lao American Review up and running

While we know there are many of you who enjoy visiting us at the Laotian American Writers Society blog here, we also wanted to draw your attention to a new project many of us are starting up, the Lao American Review, where hopefully we'll be able to get even more contributors and regular readers chipping in through wordpress. Be sure to check it out if you have an interest in Lao American poets and poetry, children's books, memoirs, short story collections, novels and more.
