October brings Oregonians!

We are happy to have two visiting writers for our 10th M.I.A. Art & Literary Series event. This month we will have Oregonians Kaia Sand and Jules Boykoff performing their poetry, as well as Susan Schultz who will read some young work about old women (click here to download the FREE ebook). Vudu Munki a.k.a. Alex Dorcean will give an exciting performance of his fiction (we promise!)

Come get drunk on literary goodness (and have a drink or two, too) on October 13th at 7:30 PM, at our regular spot, the Mercury Bar: 1154 Fort Street Mall, Honolulu, HI 96813.

The M.I.A. Art & Literary Series

Summer Hiatus

We’ve had a great first-year run, showcasing talented artists from the universities and the local artistic communities in Oahu, as well as our mainland visitors. But now, tired and cranky, we need a break.

We’ve decided to be M.I.A. this summer, but check back for our take-off event in September, with a VERY special guest!

Thank you all for your support, and we can’t wait get back to the Mercury Bar!
