by Hawai’i State Public Library System – July 25, 2023:

Join us in the first floor reading room of Hawaii State Library for a book discussion with this year’s Great Reads from Great Places selectees, chosen by the Hawai‘i Center for the Book to represent Hawai‘i at the 2023 National Book Festival in Washington, D.C. in August.  This year’s selected titles are Kapaemahu by Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, Dean Hamer and Joe Wilson and Island Wisdom by Kainoa Daines and Annie Daly.  Authors Hina Wong-Kalu, Dean Hamer, and Kainoa Daines will be attending to discuss their titles.  The featured books will be available for purchase at the event (cash only.)

Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a program, service or activity should contact library staff as soon as possible. Advance requests 48 hours or more before the event are encouraged, but not required.
