This weekend, Lao American publisher Sahtu Press is celebrating its first-year anniversary. It's been an amazing year with a lot learned and many roads yet ahead, but I'm glad to have a chance to be a part of that journey, and I look forward to doing much more with everyone in the coming years. In addition to Nor Sanavongsay and myself, we've been able to work closely with Krysada Panusith Phounsiri from San Diego, the wonderful folks at Rabbit Fool Press, Kevin Minh Allen, Soul Vang, David Zander and Sunny Chanthanouvong to help them share their voices with the world.
Little Laos on the Prairie has the main write-up on the year that's been, and some of the incredible things we've been a part of. I'm looking forward to seeing what books we'll put out next year, and am still looking for new books of poetry, children's books and other creative works for the press.
