About the artists:
The experience of growing up the daughter of Filipino immigrants in the S.F. Bay Area informs much of Lia’s writing. She is grateful to the Minnesota State Arts Board and the MRAC Next Step grant for support of the novel that she is still toiling over. She is deeply appreciative of the Bayless Poets for allowing her to sit with them once a month to share work. Her first poetry chapbook, “Tell Me When You Get There,” is forthcoming sometime next year, to be published by Finishing Line Press. Lia lives in the Little Bohemia neighborhood of St. Paul with her husband, Matt Brown.
