Meet local authors at Lahaina Town Party

By Staff | Sep 7, 2017

“Remote islands isolated by vast seas have long attracted the seafarer, the dreamer, the artist, and the teller of tall tales along with the colorful folk of dubious past deeds, some of whom gather fortnightly to share their thoughts and creativity as the Maui Writers Ink. We hope you enjoy our stories. Some will make you laugh, some might make you cry, and some could make you think and reflect upon how – and why – you came to Maui, too.” (Nansy Phleger)

So begins the inaugural collection of 33 stories and poems by eight local authors, all members of Maui Writers Ink.

Their book will be featured at the Local Authors Table during Lahaina’s Second Friday Town Party on Sept. 9 in Campbell Park across from Lahaina Public Library.

Joining Maui Writers Ink will be Jill Engledow with her interesting and well-researched books of local history, Howard Fields with his books on how to correct common grammar errors and a local family’s personal tale of suffering during WWII, and Elaine Gallant with her thrilling novel about the CIA and Russia’s diamonds. How timely!

Come meet these authors and have them sign your purchases.

Most books are also available at the Lahaina Visitor Center in the Old Lahaina Courthouse, the Maui Friends of the Library Bookstores at The Wharf Cinema Center in Lahaina and Queen Ka’ahumanu Center in Kahului, as well as from the authors themselves.

Come join the authors during the fun at Lahaina’s Second Friday Town Party beginning at 5 p.m.
