Hawaii Writers Guild Presents Writers' Voices
The Hawaii Writers Guild will present Writers’ Voices, an evening of original readings by Guild members, on Wednesday, October 3, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Thelma Parker Library, 67-1209 Mamalahoa Hwy in Waimea.
Readers will include Guild members Dave Fouts from Honokaa, Diane Revell from Kapa’au, and Jim Gibbons and Greer Woodward, both from Waimea.
“This month there will be a mix of prose and poetry and we’ve been able to keep the number of readers to four, so there will be time for discussion and questions after the readings,” said Joy Fisher, Guild public relations director.
Dave Fouts, who leads the writers support group at Tutu’s House in Waimea, has selected three of his favorite prose poems to read: “She is Indiana,” “At Sea” and “A Second Chance with the Dead.”
Diane Revell, known for writing poems and short stories, will present both genres, including a poem and nonfiction piece reflecting on her involvement in an Alzheimer’s study, as well as three other poems inspired by her experiences and the environment.
Recently returned to his home in Hawaii after an absence in California, Jim Gibbons will read a selection from his new memoir, Flashbacks, entitled “Brian Murphy Takes a Hike Dec. 2007.”
“If you have a cat that spends most of its time in your kitchen, you know about magic,” asserts Greer Woodward, who will prove the point with her short story, “A Cat of Many Kitchens,” a story which plays with secrets, history, recipes, a touch of time travel, and, of course, cats and magic.
The Hawaii Writers Guild is an independent association of professional writers engaged in the promotion of cultural enrichment. The semi-monthly readings are free and open to the public.
