Schultz.  Schultz will read from her last two books of poetry: Memory Cards: Thomas Traherne Series, and Memory Cards: Simone Weil Series, on April 12 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Hale La‘akea Library First Floor on the Windward Community College campus.  The event is free and open to the public. 

More about the featured artist:

Susan M. Schultz is the author of Memory Cards: Simone Weil Series (Equipage Press, Cambridge, UK), and the recently published Memory Cards: Thomas Traherne Series (Talisman House, Massachusetts). Both books are part of a long-term project. A memory card is a large index card-sized prose poem that begins from a random quotation from another writer, and then moves through personal and historical memory. Along with extensive work on memory, Schultz has written two books on her mother's dementia, Dementia Blog and "She's Welcome to Her Disease": Dementia Blog, Vol. 2, both from Singing Horse Press. She is a professor of English at the University of Hawai‘i, Manoā, and is the editor and publisher of Tinfish Press, which she founded in 1995. In her free time, and during the right season, she cheers for the St. Louis Cardinals.

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