Arts Kaua'i is committed to promoting an appreciation of the literary arts. Our central target is Middle School, High School, and College age students. We seek to emulate the work that Lorna Hershinow did for many years with her Celebrate Reading program. Lorna wrote grants to put literature in the schools, bring local and international authors to Kaua'i, and hold a biennial event at Kaua'i Community College where students and the general public could meet the authors. The authors chosen for these events helped to broaden the perspective of the students leading to an increased understanding of different cultures, world history, and the literary arts that convey that understanding.
