Two Literary Event Series in Honolulu: A Common Book at Windward
A Common Book at Windward Community College
For Spring 2006, “Ka‘a‘awa,” the historical novel by O.A. Bushnell, will again be the focus of the community-wide Common Book project coordinated by Windward Community College in Käne‘ohe. The Spring 2006 schedule is as follows:
• Billy Sage, “Ka‘a‘awa as Theatre” - January 31, 2006, 7:00 p.m. at Hale Akoakoa, Room 101.
• Kiki Mookini, “Medicine, Anatomia, and Ka‘a‘awa” - February 21, 2006, 7:00 p.m. at Hale Akoakoa, Room 105.
• Floyd McCoy, “Building a Novel From the Ground Up: The Geological Basis for Bushnell’s Ka‘a‘awa” - March 14, 2006, 7:00 p.m. at Hale Akoakoa, Room 105.
• Noenoe Silva, “The Life and Work of J. H. Kanepuu, a Real Kanaka Maoli Writer in the Time of Ka‘a‘awa” - April 18, 2006, 7:00 p.m. at Paliku Theatre.
We expect to add other events to the schedule.
“‘Ka‘a‘awa’ is an exciting choice for us because it is set in Hawai‘i and most of it takes place on the windward side,” said Librarian Brian Richardson. The goal of the Common Book Program is to have everyone at the College as well as a wide range of community people read and discuss the same book for an entire semester.
