There will be cultural performances, arts & crafts exhibitions, fashion shows, many hosts of vendors selling foods, and materials followed by the Oscar nominated documentary film "Nerakhoon: The Betrayal" along with a speech by the director, Thavisouk Phrasavath. Rediscover Elgin, and bring your family!
Lao American rock star Ketsana will also be attending!
Ketsana will have copies of her new album being released this month.
I'll also have a limited number of copies of my latest project, Tanon Sai Jai available, a special collection of my work from the last 5 years examining the Lao American experience (Festival special price of $10, regularly $15). Tanon Sai jai also includes never-before published pieces and a photo-essay on the Lao communities around the world.
So join us if you can for a very rare evening together! We look forward to showing you the amazing diversity and talent with the Lao community!
