Mai Der Vang announced as 2016 Walt Whitman Award Recipient

A VERY BIG congratulations to Mai Der Vang who was selected as the 2016 Walt Whitman Award recipient by the Academy of American Poets.

This marks a historic precedent for the Hmong community, and I look forward to seeing her book when it comes out from Graywolf Press next year!
