Sorry, most of you are probably not invited to the 16th annual Ka Palapala Po’okela Books Awards on May 9, but the good news is you are invited to the BOOK SALE & AUTHOR SIGNING CELEBRATION just following the ceremony. (Which means you can ask them in person of they won, and still be among the first to know)
More than 30 authors will attend and plan to sign books, including Chef Chai Chaowasaree, Jon Van Dyke (Who Owns the Crown Lands), John Wythe White (A High and Beautiful Wave), Lurline Wailana McGregor (Between the Deep Blue Sea and Me), and Matthew Kaopio (Hawaiian Family Album).
When: Saturday, May 9, 2009 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Where: Bishop Museum’s Hawaiian Hall Atrium and Courtyard
What: Book sale, entertainment by local musicians Kaimana and Keao
Why: Proceeds from book sales benefit Read to Me International, Hawaii Literacy, & Bishop Museum
