Author Kao Kalia Yang talked about her awarding-winning book “The Song Poet: A Memoir of My Father,” to an audience of about 80 book readers Sunday afternoon at the Hutchinson Event Center. Yang’s father, Bee, brought his family from the mountains of Laos in Southeast Asia to settle in St. Paul in the late 1980s. Her book was the subject of this year’s community wide book read, One Book One Community, sponsored by Heart of Hutch.
