SPOTLIGHT BY Karleen Chinen
Bamboo Ridge Press, Hawai‘i’s go-to publisher for local literature, is celebrating its Big 4-0 with the release of a new volume of poetry, prose and art — and a birthday bash.
First, the party. The “Not Pau Yet Party” will be held Saturday, Oct. 20, from 5 to 9 p.m. in the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i’s Manoa Grand Ballroom. The wordsmiths at Bamboo Ridge are promising “a celebration that’ll be one for the books!” with the “Early Catch Sale” beginning at 4 p.m., a silent auction featuring amazing items, a buffet dinner and readings of some of Hawai‘i’s favorite stories by their authors themselves.
