KAUAI BOOK CLUB

One Sunday each month  |  4pm PT, 7pm ET

 

Join our online book club where every session is led by the author of the book.

Each month our distinguished faculty will choose a book, drawing from members’ suggestions. Some will be bestsellers and winners of major prizes. Some will be less famous works the faculty think you will love. It’s like a book club with the actual author in your living room.

 

SESSIONS FOR WRITERS

Every Sunday  |  4pm PT, 7pm ET

 

These interactive online Zoom sessions include talks, workshops, and master classes by renowned authors. Most of them have said they want to focus on how the current crises are influencing their work. This will include fascinating glimpses into their individual writing process in these unique times, and discussions of whether and how they are choosing to portray the present-day drama.
