Something new is an ongoing series, highlighting the latest things happening in Hawaii.
The Modern Honolulu will launch a new literary event, Study Hall Lecture Series, on Wednesday, May 21, from 5 to 7 p.m., in its lobby lounge, The Study. The ongoing event features authors for a night of reading, a Q&A session and cocktails named after books.
Stuart Coleman, author of the books, “Eddie Would Go” and “Fierce Heart,” will be the first featured guest. Coleman has been awarded The Cades Award for Literature and the Excellence in Non-Fiction Award from the Hawaii Book Publishers Association. He’s also taught at Punahou, Iolani and the University of Hawaii, and is an environmentalist who has served as Hawaii’s first coordinator of the Surfrider Foundation since 2009.
