Talking Hawaii’s Story Editors at Na Mea Hawaii

Based on oral history interviews conducted by the Center for Oral History at UH Mānoa, Talking Hawai‘i’s Story: Oral Histories of an Island People presents a rich sampling of the landmark work done by the Center, making accessible 29 first-person narratives that previously only appeared in the COH semiannual newsletter. The book’s three coeditors, Michi Kodama-Nishimoto, Warren S. Nishimoto, and Cynthia A. Oshiro will speak at Native Books/Nā Mea Hawai‘i in Ward Warehouse (phone: 596-8885) on Sunday, June 13, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. The free talk is open to the public and will be followed by a book signing and light refreshments. Books will be available for purchase.
