Event Information:

Led by docent Lynn Hiyakumoto.

New Year's Eve, 1934. While Honolulu celebrates with champagne and fireworks, someone is making away with the Bishop Museum's portrait of King Kalākaua and doing away with its director. A series of brutal murders follows and an unlikely pair—newspaper reporter Mina Beckwith and visiting playwright Ned Manusia—find themselves investigating a twisted trail of clues in an attempt to recover the painting and uncover the killer. Prewar Honolulu comes to life in this thoroughly entertaining mystery from a colorful bygone era. 

About: Join the Book Club—a docent-led two-hour experience—to understand the collection in new ways and make new friends. Books are selected to connect with the museum’s galleries and specific works of art. Read the book and discuss with fellow readers.

The Book Club meets on the last Saturday and Wednesday of the month from 1 to 3pm.

Admission: Free with museum admission. RSVP required.
