For Immediate Release

The public is invited to a reading on “Voices from Aotearoa” with Hinewirangi Kohu-Morgan and Francine Aroha Clarke on Wednesday, October 20 from 5-6:30 p.m. in the University of Hawaii at Hilo Campus Center 301. There is no admission charge.

Kohu-Morgan comes from a long line of orators and uses the medium of “Creative Writing and a Healing Process” as a way to have women and children address issues they cannot speak of. Kohu-Morgan will read from Screaming Moko & Kanohi ki Te Kanohi and other writings.

Aroha Clarke is an advocate with the Kaitiaki Maori of the Waikato District Health Board. She first published in Germany with a collection of short stories and poems. In 1999, she published Puna Korero -- short stories and poetry from Maori writers living in Waikato.

The event is sponsored by the Hawai`i Island Writers Association, UH Hilo, and Hawai`i Community College.
