A Million Fireflies Kickstarter: Going on until January 13, 2013

Mali Phonpadith is conducting a Kickstarter to create an audio book for the millions of "fireflies" who may not be able to read her memoir, which is currently written in the English language. She needs to raise $7,500+ by January 13th, 2013.


Writer Chay Douangphouxay’s chapbook, Remission: Finding Light in the Midst of Social Darkness, is being published with a release party on Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Regla De Oro Art Gallery, 3007 Lyndale Ave South, in Minneapolis.

The poems in this collection are inspired by the life and experiences of the author from her humble beginnings in the Thai refugee camps to growing up as a second-class citizen in the Housing Projects of North Minneapolis. You can learn more at Asian American Press.
