University of Hawai‘i Press will be among the local publishers and vendors exhibiting at this weekend’s Hawai‘i Book and Music Festival, May 18-19, on the Frank F. Fasi Civic Grounds next to Honolulu Hale. Admission and parking are free. Go to the festival website to download a detailed schedule of events, as well the new HBMF app.
Be sure to come by the UH Press tent, located near the Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities Pavilion (left side of the map). We’ll have event-only specials, including 15-25% discounts and will offer free shipping on orders taken onsite. Slightly damaged (“hurt”) stock and a few titles in new condition will have even lower bargain prices. While at our booth, pick up a recipe for braised prawns from Mary Sia’s Classic Chinese Cookbook.
More than a dozen UH Press authors are presenters at the festival: Sandra Bonura, Anwei Law, Kerri Inglis, Leilani Holmes, Jim Tranquada, Mark Panek, Tom Coffman, Willa Tanabe, Victoria Kneubuhl, Malcolm Chun, Gary Pak, Randall Roth, Leslie Hayashi, Warren Nishimoto, Craig Howes, among others. Although we’ll have no set times for signings, authors will stop by throughout the day before and after their presentations, as well as be available to sign books brought along to the tents where they appear.
See you there!
