An Evening with Kao Kalia Yang

Friday, Nov. 10, 2017 | 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. | $10


How do we remember across generations and lived experiences? This public event with Kao Kalia Yang, acclaimed Minnesota author of “The Late Homecomer,” will explore how stories connect us to place and memory.

What does it take to remember the human experience of war? And how can communities pass on their experiences and traditions? In an engaging discussion with Minnesota scholar and historian Anton Treuer, Yang will discuss family, war, and human connection as she draws on her latest book, “The Song Poet.”
