The first in a new reading series called The Writer’s Voice, Punahou School’s scholar-in-residence Chang-rae Lee will give a reading Thursday October 4, 7-8 pm, at the Luke Lecture Hall in the Wo International Center on the Punahou campus.

A recipient of the PEN/Hemingway Award and American Book Award for his novel “Native Speaker,” Lee is taking a break from his teaching work at Princeton, working instead with would-be writers and students of literature at Punahou’s Academy.

Next up, on November 15 local writer Cathy Song (Picture Bride) will read from her new book.
