"Kīpuka: Finding Refuge in Times of Change" -- Edited by Donald Carreira Ching, Meredith Desha Enos, Brenda Kwon, and Misty-Lynn Sanico

New out this month from Bamboo Ridge Press, a collection of writing by Hawaiʻi authors titled "Kīpuka." Two Bamboo Ridge editors, Misty Sanico and Donald Carreira Ching, spoke about this lively collection that somehow springs directly out of the pandemic. They said "Kīpuka: Finding Refuge in Times of Change" grew out of a key Bamboo Ridge edition called "Growing Up Local." But this time, these editors wanted to get past the limiting idea of “local.”

This interview aired on The Aloha Friday Conversation on Oct. 29, 2021.

Noe Tanigawa covered art, culture and ideas for two decades at Hawaiʻi Public Radio.
