See Slam Poet Kealoha Perform at Lanai Public & School Library | Arts & Culture
In celebration of the 2011 Hawaii State Public Library System (HSPLS) Fall Children’s Programs, “Slam Poetry,” a free event featuring Kealoha, will be offered at the Lanai Public & School Library on Thursday, November 10 at 1:45 p.m.
Hawaii’s “unofficial slam poet laureate” Kealoha is an internationally-acclaimed poet and storyteller. He will combine poetry, storytelling, movement, music, theatre, and interactive speaking. The free one-hour program is suitable for ages 12 and older.
Kealoha’s performance is sponsored through a grant from the Friends of the Library of Hawaii, Ko Olina Hawaii, Marriott Resorts Hawaii, HMS Host, Meadow Gold Dairies, Hansen Distribution Group, Armstrong Produce, Roberts Hawaii, DFS Hawaii, and Toshiba Business Solutions. Additional funding is provided by the University of Hawaii at Manoa Outreach College’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program, and supported in part by the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts through appropriations from the Hawaii State Legislature and from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Contact the Library as soon as possible if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is needed.
Lanai Public & School Library is located at 555 Fraser Avenue. For more information, please call the Library at (808) 565-7920.
