Writing About Family: A Look at the Memoir with Kao Kalia Yang
Everwood Farmstead Foundation is proud to present the Artist Workshop "Writing About Family: A Look at the Memoir" with Kao Kalia Yang on Saturday, September 25th from 10 am - 3:00 pm!

Join an in-depth conversation with award-winning memoirist Kao Kalia Yang to study how and why we write about our families. The workshop will consist of five parts: a tuning of our instruments (writing prompt), an overview of Yang's approach to writing about family (personal reflection), a writing assignment, then a workshopping/reading session (based on the assignment), followed by a question/answer segment. Please come prepared to engage your own work and that of others. Class size is limited to 10 participants.

Kao Kalia Yang is an award-winning Hmong-American writer. She is the author of the memoirs
"The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir," "The Song Poet," and "Somewhere in the Unknown World." Yang is also the author of the children's books, "A Map Into the World," "The Shared Room," "The Most Beautiful Thing," and "Yang Warriors." She co-edited the ground-breaking collection "What God is Honored Here?: Writings on Miscarriage and Infant Loss By and For Native Women and Women of Color." Yang's work for adults have been recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Chautauqua Prize, the PEN USA literary awards, and the Daytons Literary Peace Prize. Her work for children have been recognized as Notable Books by the American Library Association, the Zolotow Honor, a Kirkus Best Books of the Year, a Star of the North Picture Book Award nominee, and won a Heartland Booksellers Award.
