I am so honored that The Starry Campout is the St. Paul Public Library's chapter book for Read Brave St. Paul 2021. I used to live in St. Paul, just like Astrid and Apollo. I grew up seeing no Hmong representation in books, so it's still surreal for me to know that Astrid and Apollo, a book series that stars Hmong children, is actually out in the world! It's been thrilling to receive so much support and love for the books from the local community and from readers across the country. Because of the Read Brave program, now even more readers will have the chance to read The Starry Campout. Celebrate Read Brave, Hmong children, and diverse stories with me!
