Conference Events


Oct 9 2017 to Oct 10 2017

The first-ever literary showcase at Pac Rim brings together writers and readers to celebrate storytelling, literacy and the creative spirit. Book Pavilion is a curated engagement of illuminating conversations at the intersections of disability, diversity and wordcraft.

In an intimate salon-style setting, book lovers will explore recent writing from award-winning, bestselling and emerging literary voices in fiction and nonfiction alike. Our lineup features author presentations, panel discussions, dramatic readings, poetry jams, cooking demos, memoir writing workshops and more.

This year’s mini-fest sequel is one for the books. For the first time in our conference history, we’ll be screening films under the stars! Join us on the evenings of Monday, October 9 and Tuesday, October 10 for must-see cinema on the seafront lawn of The Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort. The rest of our carefully curated slate will unspool inside the hotel. But whether indoors or out, expect the best in current documentary and fiction film-making exploring themes of disability and diversity, together with expert commentary and lively audience participation.
