FOR LOVE OF THE ARTS: A FUNDRAISER FEATURING POET CATHY SONG
To keep our local arts alive, Manoa Valley Theatre (MVT) and Bamboo Ridge Press are collaborating to host a joint fundraiser featuring award-winning poet Cathy Song on Saturday, September 12 at 4:00 PM. Limited in-person seating is available through the Manoa Valley Theatre box office with free virtual access streaming on Facebook Live. Tax-deductible donations are encouraged and can be made at any time to either organization through their respective websites. See promotional material and graphics attached.
Cathy Song will read live on stage to launch her new book All the Love in the World, which can be enjoyed as a collection of individual stories or sequentially as one narrative. The internationally acclaimed poet imbues the bookʻs prose with a unique lyrical style, following a cast of complex characters as they grow through love and loss against the backdrop of a changing world.
The ongoing pandemic has been challenging for many struggling nonprofit organizations. This event is the first of its kind for both Manoa Valley Theatre and Bamboo Ridge Press and will bring in much needed funds as they adapt to the changing climate. Monies raised will go to help both organizations continue to create and promote local art and literature.
Saturday, September 12th 4:00 PM at Manoa Valley Theatre
In-person seats: $35.00 (tax deductible via MVT box office)
Virtual Access: FREE via MVT Facebook Live
