Joel Pickford: "Soul Calling: A Photographic Journey Through The Hmong Diaspora"

When: Sat., Oct. 6, 2 p.m. 2012

The Vietnam War displaced masses of Hmong people, many of who arrived in California to start new lives. Award-winning photographer Joel Pickford spent five years documenting their stories, from the rice harvests in their native Laos to the verdant apartment gardens in Fresno. With more than two hundred brilliant color photos and several essays, Soul Calling: A Photographic Journey through the Hmong Diasporadepicts several generations of immigrants adding their own layer to the Hmong culture. Pickford will discuss his book on Saturday, Oct. 6, at the Berkeley Public Library's Main Branch (2090 Kittredge St., Berkeley). 2 p.m., free. 510-981-6100 or BerkeleyPublicLibrary.org
