This year's Fox Cities Book Festival is completely online.
The festival kicks off with 2020 NEW Big Read: Fox Cities Reads author -- Kao Kalia Yang -- postponed from April. Ms. Yang’s The Latehomecomer was the perfect book for us to read as a communtiy altogether. She is also the author of The Song Poet and the children’s picture book A Map into the World. Kao Kalia Yang is a Hmong-American. Her story is a moving and inspirational tale. Find links to interviews and more.
