‘Hmong Chronicles: Refugee Life’

Through a partnership with the Hmong Museum, the Maplewood Library, 3025 Southlawn Drive, is hosting a history program in the immigration narratives of Hmong-Americans. Join Hmong-American writer Shoua Lee and her mother Tsai Ly as they reinterpret Hmong oral history and traditions to explore haunting memories of experiences in the refugee camps following the “Secret War” in Southeast Asia almost half a century ago. This program will explore a too-little-known area of the Hmong-American experience, but it will also resonate with anyone interested in the common experiences of all immigrants. Hmong Chronicles: Refugee Life will be held May 20 at 2 p.m. and will be offered in Hmong and English. All are welcome, and there is no charge for this program.
