Joseph Stanton often writes in response to artworks and Hawaii wildlife, and will be reading from Prevailing Winds, his seventh book of poems. Stanton, a Professor Emeritus at UH-Mānoa , is  widely published in such journals as Poetry, New York Quarterly, Antioch Review, Harvard Review, New Letters, and Bamboo Ridge.

Melodious, lyrical, Richard Tillinghast’s poems of place and displacement are deeply personal as they look back over a long and eventful life. Tillinghast also focuses on troubled and troubling aspects of the American story: the Indian Wars of the 19th century and the history of race relations in his native South, from slavery to the country’s current racial reckoning.
