A Map Into The World is her first children’s book, telling "the heartfelt story of a young Hmong girl seeking beauty and connection in a busy world."

This community celebration of Kao Kalia Yang will take place at Nokomis North Campus on Friday, October 11 from 5-6:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided, and food for purchase will be available from local food trucks.

This is a collaborative event between the Office of Multilingual Learning (MLL) and the Nokomis Community (North and South).
