Scenes from Our Sea of Words: Poetry from Oceania and Beyond

Solid reading last night at Pegasus Books for Our Sea of Words. It was standing room only as the Pacific Islander community was in full effect with representation across the board from youngsters, students, professors and elders. Lots of faces you don’t see at regular poetry events. Literary tradition was also a theme as every poet was grateful for the chance to read with Caroline Sinavaiana and she returned the love back commenting on how she felt that Pacific Oceanic Literature and thoughts for the next generation are in good hands.

  1. Oscar, thanks so much for this documentation. Great pictures and videos! I feel like we should pay you!

    At the very least, I feel pushed to keep up my end of things- I'll do a write-up soon too and maybe it will help revive my old dead blog.

    It was awesome to see you, thanks for being a part of it!

  2. No worries, Maile. I love taking good pics and videos of community lit events.

    I'd be real interested in a write-up from your side of things as organizer, reader and fan of Pacific Islander poetry.

    Great to see ya and to hear your new poems.

  3. Hey, Oscar! Thanks for posting the video and pics. Looks like it was a fun reading.

    Wish I could have been there.
