Maui Writers Ink to debut new book
LAHAINA – “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, but all will 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 launched at Lahaina’s Second Friday Town Party on Feb. 10 beginning at 5 p.m., with many of the authors present to sign book purchases.
The next day, Feb. 11, will feature a special reading by Katherine Cloutier of some of the stories and poems at Lahaina Public Library beginning at noon, with authors in attendance to sign book purchases.
The books will be sold at the introductory price of $10 at both events. Thereafter, the price will rise to $15 and be available for purchase at the Lahaina Courthouse Gift Shop, 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.
