Another lively reading in Hilo!

Due to popular demand, Tom read for a second time in downtown Hilo at Basically Books. The December 8th reading brought in people who hadn’t been able to attend the November event, and another lively discussion ensued. Several of Tom’s writing students joined the group, and Bookstore owner Christine Reed took some video of the reading and book signing.  (Photos by Catherine Robbins, pictured with Tom, bottom right)

Good fun at Maui readings!

Mahalo to Wayne Moniz and Whole Foods’ Elyse Ditzel for organizing this event!
