That’s a Crazy One by Mel Stones

As a teenage photographer born and raised in Brooklyn, Mel Stones had inside access to the New York City youth culture of the 1990s. She will present and discuss images from her book, That’s a Crazy One, at Windward Community College’s Out Loud in the Library! on Wednesday, September 12, 5:30–7 p.m. in the Hale Laʻakea Library.

Stones will also explore questions about reality and illusion, the power of photography and an artist’s responsibility to its subjects.

Out Loud in the Library! is a free literary and music event celebrating the rich intersection of words and music by local artists. The event is meant to inspire and encourage students to find their own creative voices through writing, reading, poetry, music, spoken word and the visual arts.
