Nor Sanavongsay was a member of the Lao American Writers Summit back in 2010, and presented the Xieng Mieng storybook he wanted to make. He's been at it almost 14 years and now he's almost finished making that dream happen.
Since the beginning of February, he's been holding a Kickstarter to fund the production of a full-color hardcover book, and now he's just $2K away from being able to present a hardcover edition of the book if he gets enough support. Backers can get a number of different rewards for their support, from thank you notes and exclusive post-cards to custom sketches and more. A donation of $15 will cover the cost of a physical copy of the book and the e-book version.
