For Immediate Release

The works of four local women authors are the focus of a short course offered by the University of Hawaii at Hilo College of Continuing Education and Community Service. The class, taught by instructor Miyoko Sugano, begins Tuesday, October 7 and runs for five weeks.

The books Sugano has selected for this special course are: Lee Cataluna’s The Folks You Meet at Long’s, Nora Okja Keller’s Comfort Woman, Juliet S. Kono’s Tsunami Years, and Lois-Ann Yamanaka’s most recent novel, Behold the Many.

This is a chance for those who live in the islands to connect with writers who speak in the voices of the local people by sampling four very diverse works. Sugano invites everyone to join her circle of readers and share thoughts and feelings about these readings.

Tuition is $35 with a $5 discount to Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) members. Registration is now open and space is limited. Call 974-7664 to register or for more information.
