Now through January 28: Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
Manoa Valley Theatre continues its 49th season in this fast-paced comedy about everyone’s favorite detective solving his most notorious case January 11 – 28.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are on the case when the male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Our intrepid investigators must navigate a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters. And for the first time in its history, Ludwig’s delightful play will be performed by an all-female cast.  The production will run January 11 – 28.

January 21: Read to Me International Book Fair at Barnes & Noble Ala Moana Center
Ever since she was a child herself, Lois Kim, author and illustrator of Mommy Loves You, has turned to drawing as a source of comfort. During her incarceration at the Women’s Community Correctional Center (WCC) in Kailua, her passion for art became a lifeline. She wrote Mommy Loves You in collaboration with Haku Mo‘olelo (“Composed Stories”), a program offered to inmates by the non-profit organization Read to Me International. The story and accompanying illustrations provided her with an outlet to combat her loneliness and to reassure her children that her absence wasn’t their fault—that her love for them endured above all else. The book’s universal message of maternal love emphasizes to kids that no matter the reason for a mother’s absence—work, travel, illness, incarceration or even simply “me time”—there should be no doubt of a mother’s love.

This heartfelt children’s book is the result of a young mother’s challenging life journey. Author/illustrator Lois Kim is available for interviews; join her for a storytime reading of her new book on January 21 1-2pm at Barnes & Noble Ala Moana Center, followed by a book signing, benefiting Read to Me International, a local non-profit dedicated to bringing families together through reading.
