Carol Moldaw and Arthur Sze in The Green Room

After a hiatus of more than two years, The Merwin Conservancyʻs beloved arts and ecology series The Green Room returned to in-person gatherings on Maui with two very special guests, our poets-in-residence Carol Moldaw and Arthur Sze. These extraordinary poets have recently been the Conservancyʻs guests, spending a month writing in the former home of W.S. and Paula Merwin. While on Maui, Carol and Arthur shared the stage for a very special reading at the Hui Noʻeau Visual Arts Center.

This intimate event was captured on video and will be broadcast on Crowdcast on Wednesday, August 31st, at 2:00pm Hawaiʻi / 5:00pm Pacific / 6:00pm Mountain / 8:00pm Eastern. As a special treat for those attending the broadcast, Carol and Arthur will be live in the chat answering audience questions.

The event is free, and donations are welcome at the virtual “door” to support this public program, now in its ninth year. Those who are unable to make the live broadcast can watch the replay for up to one month, if pre-registered. 

This event is made possible with the support of Green Room Patrons, the Jonathan and Kathleen Altman Foundation, the Atherton Family Foundation, William True, and the Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center.
