The Song Poet Live


Ordway Events & Partnerships, Ordway Concert Hall

Thanks to the Knight Opportunity Fund, the Ordway hosts an exclusive performance of traditional Hmong song poetry by Sally Award winner Bee Yang and a reading by his daughter and award-winning writer Kao Kalia Yang. The evening will center on The Song Poet, winner of the 2017 MN Book Award in Creative Nonfiction/Memoir, finalists for: the National Book Critics Circle Award, PEN USA Literary Award, the Chautauqua Prize, the Midwest Independent Booksellers Award, and the Dayton’s Literary Peace Prize. This collaborative performance will be the first of its kind for the Minnesota Ordway, and speak powerfully to the diversity of artists in Minnesota.
