Soul Calling: A Photographic Journey Through The Hmong Diaspora
You must be an OLLI member to attend this lecture. See how below.
Photographer/author Joel Pickford will present an informative slide lecture about his eight year project documenting Hmong culture, from the vegetable farms of California to the mountains of Laos. Joel’s book, Soul Calling, follows the exodus of Hmong refugees from the aftermath of the CIA’s secret war in Laos to squalid refugee camps in Thailand, and finally to a challenging new life in America. The book was a finalist for the 2013 Northern California Book Award in Creative Nonfiction. Joel will sign copies of the book for those who bring them. You can purchase the book on the publisher’s website at: www.heydaybooks.com/book/soul-calling
