Where: Kapolei Public Library, 1020 Manawai St, Kapolei, United States
Come and celebrate All Saints’ Day with some spine-tingling scary verse by local poet Eric P. Shaffer. He will read poems classic and contemporary on subjects natural and supernatural, familiar and far-fetched. The work will focus mostly on the elements of everyday life that leave us a little frightened, but with a little insight, too.
An associate professor of English at Honolulu Community College, Dr. Shaffer has authored six books of poetry, the most recent being A Million-Dollar Bill, which was published in August 2016. Nearly 450 of his poems have been published in reviews, journal, and magazines throughout the U.S. and the world. He received Hawaii’s 2002 Elliot Cades Award for Literature, a 2006 Ka Palapala Po‘okela Book Award for LAhaina Noon, and the 2009 James M. Vaughan Award for Poetry for his poem “The Whistle.”
The following four books by Dr. Schaffer will be available for purchase ($10.00 separately, or all four for $35.00; all prices include general excise tax; cash or check) with the assistance of Friends of the Library Kapolei (“FOLK”): A Million-Dollar Bill; Lahaina Noon; Living at the Monastery, Working in the Kitchen; and Portable Planet. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to FOLK.
Free. All ages welcome. Young children must be accompanied by an adult.
