    The Kānaka Maoli literary scene is asking for help from authors, illustrators, publishers, and agents as they embark on the slow road to recovery following the deadly wildfires of August 8th on Maui, Hawai’i.

    If you are a writerly sort, you can help by donating services and items that can be auctioned off to raise recovery funds. Examples are:

    • signed copies

    • offers of manuscript consultations

    • illustrator portfolio critiques

    • special editions

    • any other items or services (e.g., AMAs)

    You can pledge your donations here.

    More information is available @booksformaui. The drive is being organized by Malia Maunakea, Keala Kendall, Joanna Ho, Kealani Netane, Erika Cravalho-Meyers, Shar Tuʻiasoa, and Terisa Siagatonu.
