Out Loud in the Library at Windward Community College presents We Go Jam Reading, Music and Book Signing on Thursday, February 21, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m., celebrating the newly released book with contributing authors Puakea Nogelmeier, Jerry Santos, Calvin Hoe, Thelma Chang, Aiko Yamashiro, and editor Susan Yim.
Meet on the breezeway outside Windward CC’s new Library Learning Commons entrance at 6 p.m. for refreshments and music by the college’s TRiO students. From 6:30 to 8 p.m., activities move to the library atrium on the first floor with a special reading and music. This event is sponsored by the Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities (HCH) and Windward CC, and is free and open to the public.
We Go Jam: Celebrating Our Music, Our Soundscape, Our Hawai‘i, published by HCH, will be on sale for a special price of $10 per book during the evening. Ten books will also be given away in a "Write to Win" contest: write 100 words or less about what a song, or music, means to you and bring your writing to the event, or be inspired at the event.
“Nothing brings us together quite so wholeheartedly as does music, connecting us to a place and telling stories about ourselves and the world around us. We Go Jam is a pure humanities project and we are happy to join Windward Community College in celebrating the music of Kāne‘ohe and Windward O‘ahu,” said Bob Buss, HCH executive director.
Out Loud in the Library is coordinated by Windward CC English instructor and award-winning poet Janine Oshiro. For more information, contact Windward CC marketing director Bonnie Beatson at 235-7374 or
