Reader's Art 12 : Philip R. Luoma Anderson

Reader's Art 12: Longing for home covers a lot of territory.  Over the next few weeks I will be featuring images from the artists who are participating from close to home and as far away as France.

Pictured above is an image from Changing Face of a Nation  by Philip R. Luoma AndersonIn the book Adult Basic Education students who are learning English wrote a personal narrative. They wrote about their lives in their home countries, coming to the USA, their current lives, and their hopes for the future. Philip was their instructor. He wrote about demographic change in the USA and Minnesota, language acquisition, and the loss of heritage language and the factors that influence language acquisition, language maintenance, and language loss.
