April 6, 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Burns Hall - Virtual Workshop Add to Calendar

The East-West Center welcomes you to a special conversation between authors Julian Aguon and Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner, both alumni of the East-West Center, on their art forms, journey, and the messages they hope to convey through their work. This event celebrates their contributions to the literature of the Pacific Islands, and the release of Julian’s new book, The Properties of Perpetual Light, a collection of soulful ruminations about love, loss, struggle, resilience and power. Join Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner, a poet of international acclaim and member of the Climate Envoy for the Republic of the Marshall Islands government, and Julian Aguon, a human rights lawyer and writer from Guam, for an intimate “talk story” about what motivates them in their work, and what they hope to pass on to younger generations.
