Co-produced by Bamboo Ridge Press and Hawai‘i Public Radio, Aloha Shorts brought some of Hawai‘i’s finest writers, actors, and musicians together each week for a much-loved, half-hour radio program celebrating local literature. The show went off the air six years ago, but has not been forgotten.
A new collection from Bamboo Ridge Press, The Best of Aloha Shorts, brings together over thirty poems and stories that are not only excellent in themselves, but were also outstanding in performance.
HPR presents a one-night-only, live performance of selections from the book on August 11 at the Palikū Theatre. Readings by the original actors, music from the Aloha Shorts house band Hamajang, hosted by Cedric Yamanaka, and surprise guests -- it'll be old home week!
