Ka'a'awa: A Novel About Hawaii in the 1850’s
by O.A. Bushnell

Bushnell is considered one of the foremost historical novelists of Hawai’i. In Ka’a’awa, the eloquent and emotional narratives of two individuals, Saul Bristol and Hiram Nihoa, bring to life the conflict between old Hawai’i and an emerging new one that will change the islands forever. 

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.
