(Sarah Kay is)

January 29-February 9, 2015
Performing and teaching at ‘Iolani School in Honolulu, HI!
Sarah was named this year’s Keables Chair Honoree. The Keables Chair became the first endowed chair in the State of Hawai‘i as ‘Iolani School sought to honor legendary English teacher Harold Keables. The Chair brings distinguished artists, writers and teachers to ‘Iolani each year for what is usually a two-week residency. They work primarily with students, but also with teachers and parents, to broaden horizons and shape minds, just as Harold Keables did. Sarah was absolutely floored by the students and faculty she worked with at ‘Iolani. Much gratitude to Mike Among, Frank Briguglio, and everyone else who made this residency possible. (Thanks also to the lovely fan and artist who made this beautiful caligraphy!)
