For Immediate Release

The University of Hawaii at Hilo College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS) launches its spring session with over a hundred exciting, new and affordable courses covering a wide range of interests, including music, literature, dance, health and wellbeing, computers and food appreciation.

One class making its debut this session is “Some Classics of Hawai`i’s Local Literature,” beginning January 30 and running through February 27 on Wednesdays from 5-6:30 pm. Enrolled students will take a literary journey through the wonders of some of Hawai`i’s local literature with instructor Miyoko Sugano. The journey will cover the early life on the plantation through Milton Murayama’s All I Asking for Is My Body, the adolescent worlds Darrell Lum creates in his short stories “Beer Can Hat” and “Primo Doesn’t Buy Back Bottles Anymore” found in Best of Bamboo Ridge, and the dark struggles in Lois-Ann Yamanaka’s novel, Blu’s Hanging. The cost is $30 and the registration deadline is January 25. Space is limited.
