Constance Hale is certainly a “grammar maven.” Her guide to sentences, Sin and Syntax, sits on writers’ desks, library shelves, and many a bedside table. But she’s also a hula dancer, a poet, and a bit of a rebel. Two years ago she decided to defy literary pigeon holes, producing two books outside the mainstream. She will reveal the whys and wherefores of her ventures into indie publishing, and she’ll ply you with Mai Tais, share her thoughts on Hawaiian culture, and teach you some hula moves.
Constance Hale is a Hawaii-born, SF-based journalist and the author of three books on literary style, including Sin and Syntax. In fall 2016, she released two category-breaking books: ‘Iwalani’s Tree (a prose poem for children set in Hawaii) and The Natives Are Restless (an intellectual coffee-table book on the hula).
