Laotian American writer to hold reading

Laotian American writer Bryan Thao Worra will hold a public reading at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, at the Hmong Cultural and Community Center, Ward Avenue and Mormon Coulee Road in La Crosse.

Thao Worra will also be a guest in some Viterbo English classes. His reading is sponsored by the Viterbo Department of Global Education, the School of Letters and Sciences, and the Hmong Cultural and Community Center.

Thao Worra was born in Laos in 1973. His work has appeared internationally in Australia, Singapore, Germany, England, and across the U.S. His first full-length book of poetry, “On the Other Side of the Eye,” was released in August by Sam's Dot Publishing.

His work frequently explores a wide range of social and cultural themes and the transient nature of identity and home. His style is frequently experimental and draws from a variety of modern and contemporary influences.
