August 14 at Beyond Baroque–Ryka’s Really Last Minute Publicity for Her Beyond Baroque Reading

Books and Publications, He Mele A Hilo, Readings and Events / Thursday, August 13th, 2015

OK! So I really screwed up the publicity for this event, and I know many of you probably have plans–BUT!! If you come, I’ll be reading and talking about Hawaii, and signing books, with maybe a discount, and THERE WILL BE DONUTS!

“RYKA AOKI reads from her debut novel, A Mele A Hilo: A Hilo Song, a tale of colliding and evolving cultures on the Big Island of Hawai’i. You will not soon forget the lives portrayed here, the contrasting ethnicities, beliefs, sometimes fraught with greed, intrigues, prejudice, and bigotry, but transformed by ancient and contemporary hula, all blending in a feast of dance, music, food, local theater, into a community of distinct and colorful individuals finding its unique, inspired self.”

Hosted by RICHARD MODIANO. Regular Admission $10, Students & Seniors $6, Members Free.”

This event starts Friday, Aug. 14 at 8 pm.
