La Crosse Reads, in collaboration with Hear Here, will offer a specialized tour focusing on stories of Hmoob immigration, developed by Associate Director of Hear Here and Associate Archives Librarian at the La Crosse Public Library Jenny DeRocher. The tour will highlight local stories and histories that resonate with Kao Kalia Yang’s The Latehomecomer, elevating those voices from our community that join the novel in weaving a rich and varied tapestry of the Hmoob experience in the upper Midwest.
Tuesday, April 9th beginning at 5:30 p.m
