New Years Resolution: Living in Tweakerville, discovering The Size of the Universe, and being King of the Hawaii Review

It’s hard to keep up with all the great literature being written in Honolulu. Luckily, the M.I.A. Art & Literary Series is here to pull you up by your slippers and drag you out once a month for a night of good booze and good performances by local artists. This month we are proud to have three strapping young men grace us with their presence.

Alexei Melnick is the author of Tweakerville, which the Honolulu Weekly called “the real thing”. Read reviews of Alexei’s book here and  here, and then come hear him read on Jan. 12th.

Joseph Cardinale is the author of The Size of the Universe, which HTMLGIANT reviewed here. Cardinale’s work can be read at Web Conjunctions. It’s awesome and he’s awesome. So come to M.I.A. and confirm his awesomeness.

Donovan Colleps is the Editor-in-Chief of the Hawaii Review. The new issue will be out soon, and yes, he will be in it, which we don’t think is weird at all. Donovan is a cool person and looks really young for his age, so you’ll definitely want to hear him read.

The night will be hosted by Chris Riel of In Yo Face Improv. So be prepared to laugh. A lot. (No pressure Chris!) IYFI is awesome, and if you come by M.I.A. you’ll learn how/when/where to see more of Chris & his funny friends.

Looking forward to this event, Wednesday, January 12th @ the good ‘ol Mercury Bar conveniently located in an alley in Chinatown. Address on the flyer. Hope to see you all there!
