Book Release Reception

Please join us at Alan Akana Gallery for a book release reception on Friday, May 26, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. for the revised edition of “The Volcano Is Our Home: Nine Generations of a Hawaiian Family on Kilauea Volcano.”

The book shares stories of Hawaiian culture and unfolds Hawaiian history from the perspective of the Hawaiian people who lived on the slopes of Kilauea Volcano on the Island of Hawaii. The original edition was published in 2014. The revised edition includes changes that the author has learned about history and culture since the original version was printed.

The author will give a talk at 7:30 about the book and how the revised edition came about. There will be free refreshments and signed copies of the book available for sale.
