On Tuesday, July 19, at 6:30 pm, writers Kathryn Stockett, Mark Doty, Ishion Hutchinson, and Victoria Redel will arrive at the Yard to headline “Gatsby Reimagined,” a benefit and celebration of the literary magazine HOW Journal, which recently partnered with the Yard. The event will include cocktails, dinners, readings, and dance pieces based on a short work of nonfiction by HOW’s editor and founder, Alison Weaver, and other guest writers. HOW publishes the work of prominent and upcoming writers in an effort to raise money for needy children throughout the world. Both Ms. Weaver and Honor Moore, the journal’s poetry editor, are Vineyard summer residents. Seating is limited. For tickets and more information, visit
