Writing from These Roots

Writing from These Roots: Literacy in a Hmong-American Community is the winner of the 2009 Outstanding Book Award from the Conference on College Composition and Communication.

Writing from These Roots richly conceptualizes the study of literacy by considering its historical, personal, institutional, cultural, and transnational dimensions. . . . [It is a] fascinating account that takes [readers] across continents, across decades of recent history. The dimensions of literacy that [are brought] forward in [this] volume are beneath the surface of all our students’ literate acts and ought to be the subject of our study and our pedagogy.” —Conference on College Composition and Communication Award Committee
