Reading today at AADL "Hawaii: Deep Beauty and Volcanic Power" with Tom Peek 7pm

Today:  I will be reading with Tom Peek at Ann Arbor District Library on Tuesday October 29, 2013, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, "Hawaii: Deep Beauty and Volcanic Power."

This program is themed around Hawaii and our romance with volcanos, but it is really about writing about place, culture(s), environmental and development issues. Here's the agenda:

  • Introduction by Susan Najita of the University of Michigan Department of English and Department of American Culture Program in Asian/Pacific Islander American Studies 
  • Hula kumu June Yoshiko Kaililani Ryushin Tanoue of Halau i Ka Pono hula school in Chicago will do a Pele (volcano) chant
  • Artist Catherine Robbins will discuss her painting and photography
  • I will be reading from my new chapbook, "Where the Lava Meets the Sea--Asian Pacific American Postcards from Hawaii."
  • Tom Peek will be reading from his new novel, "Daughters of Fire."
  • Q&A Panel Discussion
  • Book Signing! And snacks!
