Celebrating 5 Years of Bamboo Among the Oaks

Thank you so much to everyone who came to help us celebrate the 5th anniversary of Bamboo Among the Oaks on Thursday night at the Rondo Community Outreach Library.

It was a great and extraordinary reading with over 60 people in attendance, including students, librarians, academics, fans of Asian American literature and other great writers of our community.

You all helped to mark a special turning point in literature. More thoughts on the event will be posted a little later, but I do also want to give a special thanks to Alayne Hopkins from the Friends of the St. Paul Library, and Dyane Garvey and Mitch Ogden from the Hmong American Institute for Learning and Paj Ntaub Voice for all of their generous support.
