Suddenly there are many events erupting this Spring. One of two April literature events to watch for (the next will be announced soon) is below:
On April 12, 9am-2pm at the UH Campus Center Ballroom, 17 of the 21 authors whose work will be discussed during the 11th Annual Celebrate Reading Festival will gather to allow Hawai`i readers and writers age 12 and up the opportunity to participate in over a dozen free conversations.
And of course some will be facilitated by others connected to the works (but not the author him/herself), such as a discussion about two Khaled Hosseini novels, The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, where Diana Saidy will team up with Barack Obama’s sister Maya Oetoro-Ng.
