This week’s show features the poetry of Julia Katz plus a musical playlist curated by the author herself. Julia writes poems about G-d and gay love to forget about her dissertation. Her work has been published in LIES: Volume II and Imagining Asia in the Americas, and is forthcoming from Pacific Historical Review. She gets around Honolulu but always comes home to her dog. Julia's three gorgeous poems featured on this show are about violence, trauma, time, and endurance. This show also includes on-air readings by Aiko Yamashiro and Rajiv Mohabir plus music that the authors chose to complement their works. This is the first episode of "It's Lit" at its new time slot of nine to midnight on Tuesdays, Hawaiʻi Standard Time.
