The Kona Library Book Club meets on the lanai of the Kailua Kona Library on April 15th at 11:00AM. This month’s selection is Honolulu by Alan Brennert. This is the richly imagined story of Jin, a young “picture bride” who leaves her native Korea—where girls are so little valued that she is known as Regret—and journeys to Hawaii in 1914 in search of a better life. With its passionate knowledge of people and places in Hawaii far off the tourist track, Honolulu is another spellbinding story of the triumphs and sacrifices of the human spirit.
Join us for light refreshments and a lively discussion. The Book Club will meet in May to discuss The Passion of Artemisiaby Susan Vreeland.
