Book Talks - Staff Picks: "Hawaii's Story by Hawaii's Queen" by Lili'uokalani and "Captive Paradise" by James L. Haley In-Person

Join us to discuss the extraordinary life of Queen Lili'uokalani, last monarch of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Her autobiography, Hawaii's Story by Hawaii's Queen, is the only text of its kind by a Hawaiian ruler and a vital historical account not only of her life and reign, but also of the final days of her kingdom. From this gifted composer, devoted leader, and beloved queen of her people, we gain a fascinating and invaluable first-person account of Hawaiian culture, foreign influence, and peaceful resistance in the nineteenth century.
