About the Author
Kao Kalia Yang is a mother of three and a writer of both adult and children's literature. She is author of A Map into the World, the award-winning memoirs The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir and The Song Poet, and is coeditor with Shannon Gibney of What God Is Honored Here? Writings on Miscarriage and Infant Loss by and for Native Women and Women of Color (Minnesota, 2019). Her dream is to create books that a child can grow up with and an adult can grow old with. She lives in Minnesota where the winters are cold and dry and the summers are hot and humid, but there are days in between that are so very precious and perfect they are a state secret.
Xee Reiter is a first-generation Hmong-American artist and illustrator. She lives in St. Paul with her husband and three children.
"There is such power and pain and beauty in this brave little book. It is a thing to be treasured. Children who have experienced terrible grief in their young lives and are in need of seeing their sorrow reflected and honored have a beautiful friend in this story. The Shared Room is a tender thing--all heart and hope and quiet love. I love it dearly."--Kelly Barnhill, author of Newbery Medal Winner The Girl Who Drank the Moon
