Mai Der Vang Wins 2016 Walt Whitman Award for 'Afterland,' Poetry Collection on Hmong Experience - NBC News

My article for NBC Asian America
"I have loved her work for years, and I dare say Whitman would love her work: brave, visionary, and true," Fresno poet laureate Lee Herrick told NBC News. "Her voice is simultaneously American, Asian American, and Hmong American in its singular beauty and originality. It is a groundbreaking book from an important new voice. Great poetry should widen our notion of the human condition, and Vang's poems do that and much more."
