Thanks to technology, NVMC’s “An Afternoon with the Author” invites published fiction and non-fiction writers from around Hawaii and the mainland into our homes.
By means of ZOOM, the Center will host a different author each month to talk about their work, the story behind the story, and their personal journey on the way to having their work published.
Chosen because of its tie to the Japanese-American experience, each author’s work connects individuals with larger truths and ideas about society. After all, everything that happens in the world can be written and learned from literature which through the centuries has shaped civilizations, changed political systems, exposed injustice and observed the human condition. Literature is the foundation of humanity's cultures, beliefs, and traditions.
