Here we are a year later! Our beautiful baby born October 14, 2010 is dreaming beside me and I am contemplating the work ahead. October 1, we are scheduled for D.C. And the Lao Heritage Foundation, to share Mali Under the Night Sky. November contains Miami's illustrious Book Fair. The question of new projects, and developments on past projects perches in the Phoenix shell stage. The nest is well built and the memory of feathers, flames, flying- the joys and challenges of bringing work into the world- ever present.

(August) September & October events

Honored to participate in a virtual interview with the scholars at Summit Academy in Brooklyn September 17 and looking forward to Lionel Vital representing Selavi at the Boston Book Fair, October 16. Enjoyed meeting the inaugural class of Chicago Friends School and creating together some delightful paper seeds and plants! Powerfully moved by last month's Lao American Writer's Summit in Minneapolis! So much talent in one room! Still working on our contribution to celebrate Hanoi's 1000th birthday. I will certainly post images when we have completed it.
