Meet and talk story with editors, writers, and artists who collaborated on Bamboo Ridge's first-of-its-kind anthology of local short stories and works across speculative genres. Book signing to follow the readings and Q & A.

Bamboo Ridge Press and guest editors Tom Gammarino, Bryan Kamaoli Kuwada, D. Kealiʻi MacKenzie, and Lyz Soto put out a call for submissions and challenged writers to create speculative narratives that “imagine otherwise.” The result is a collection of pieces from forty-eight established and emerging authors and artists whose work goes beyond science fiction and fantasy into a new realm of speculative work. Thoughtfully curated and arranged to amplify each piece within a larger reading experience, SNARING NEW SUNS is a special anthology that experiments with form and mixes genres to include stories and poetry of the supernatural, alternate reality, climate fiction, and more. Plus, art, graphic stories, nonfiction, and even a stage play.
