SPD Press of the Month & Steve Shrader Event News

[from a press release of sorts]

Tinfish Press recently published Steve Shrader's posthumous double album _The Arc of the Day / The Imperfectionist_. See here for more details:

Shrader was an instructor in the UHM English department for several years in the late 1960s and early 1970s.  He was also a journalist (for the _Hawaii Observer_) and a graphic designer (he worked for many years for _Hana Hou!_). After getting an MFA from Iowa in the late 1960s, he seems to have stopped writing poetry until shortly before his death in 2007, when he completed the two book-length volumes of poetry. He lived in Waimānalo for over 35 years, and many of his poems reflect his sense of place there.

Koa Gallery at KCC will be having a gallery show of Shrader's photographs (many of which can be found on the book cover) and some collages. The photographs were taken in Portland, Oregon, where he went on frequent press checks for _Hana Hou!_

--On October 3rd, there will be a reception between 4:30-7 at Koa Gallery.

--October 5th at 1 p.m. at Koa Gallery there will be a reading from his new Tinfish book, designed by Allison Hanabusa. We are seeking guest readers for that event. The exhibition will run until October 11.

Please feel free to come by the Tinfish office in 214 Kuykendall and have a look. No strings.
