Hmong poetry book Afterland anticipated this April

Over at Lao Poetry Online, we're discussing the upcoming book by Hmong American poet Mai Der Vang, Afterland. According to the publisher, "Afterland is a powerful, essential collection of poetry that recounts with devastating detail the Hmong exodus from Laos and the fate of thousands of refugees seeking asylum. Mai Der Vang is telling the story of her own family, and by doing so, she also provides an essential history of the Hmong culture’s ongoing resilience in exile.."
