Evening of Poetry and Prose
Kalele Bookstore and MAC News Release
Ariana Nadia Nash and Brandon W. Jones will be reading from their works in progress at Kalele Bookstore on Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 6 p.m. in a lively literary event cosponsored by Kalele Bookstore and the Molokai Arts Center (MAC).
Wine and the written word have gone hand in hand since before the time of Euripides, so bring a bottle of wine and/or a pupu dish to share and come lift a glass to the literary tradition. Ariana will be reading new works of poetry and Brandon will be reading one of his short stories, with time at the end to ask them questions about their work. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend this rare double bill!
Ariana is the author of Instructions for Preparing Your Skin (Anhinga Press, 2013), which won the 2011 Philip Levine Prize for Poetry, and the chapbook Our Blood is Singing (Damask Press, 2012). She has won a Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Prize and been a finalist for the Benjamin Saltman Award and the Edes Prize. She has been awarded residencies at the MacDowell Colony, the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, and the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation. She is currently a part-time lecturer at the University of Chicago. Brandon is the author of All Woman and Springtime (Algonquin Books, 2012), an internationally bestselling novel.
