Laotian poet Souvankham Thammavongsa is not only a great poet she is a great person. Meeting her for the taping of the video below was a pleasure.  We chatted for two hours. Lots of laughs, book talk, and idea sharing.

Souvankham reads at the International Festival of the Authors, Toronto, Sunday October 23, 2011 at 2 pm, and Saturday October 29, 2011 at 4pm. Don’t miss it!
