I have been reading Coconut, really, for about ten years,
and a new issue is always good news.

You should know about their books, if you don't,
which are back in full energy after a bit of a break.

In other news, here, we've moved  back onto
the family homestead in rural Nebraska
where I am still busy mowing.  I'm finding
the community healthy and welcoming, and the small
arts community near Norfolk has a lot of new energy.

Goodbye, Honolulu, 
I love you. 
Use your signals.

Tinfish Live and on the Radio

Two events for Tinfish Press's recently released
Jack London is Dead: 
Contemporary Euro-American Poetry of Hawai'i

The first  one requires you to be there in person:
Honolulu's best, most diverse local literary series will host
a reading of work from the anthology.
M.I.A. Art and Literary Series.  Fresh Cafe.  Monday, Feb. 18th. 7:30.
President's day is a coincidence.

[Audio of this reading is archived at Penn Sound!]

Thank you, Jaimie Gusman.

For the second one, you just need 
to be on the internet:
Susan Schultz, Jaimie Gusman, and me discuss race, ethnicity, identity, and the anthology on
Hawai'i Public Radio
(this link includes a great 3 minute feature,
as well as extended interviews).

Thank you, Noe Tanigawa.
