Join Elaine Russell as she reads from her new novel, Across the Mekong River. A wonderful novel about a forgotten war and culture, a story about Hmong refugees and the universal portrait of the immigrant experience. After leaving their homeland to begin anew in a strange foreign culture, a family must begin anew in a different world. Russell illustrates the common themes that run true for all new immigrants who come the U.S. filled with hope and often faced with a harsh reality.
