Last weekend’s Hawaii Book and Music Festival in Honolulu was great. I got to meet readers of my book, The Last Aloha, and introduce it to new readers, many of whom came by the B&N booth to buy it and “talk story.”
During the Q&A session, I got rave reviews from people like the owner of Native Books in Honolulu and a well-known Hawaiian artist. Even the chairman of the Festival board attended my talk! Others came up after to add their comments and invite me to give other talks, like the owner of Kona Stories on the Big Island.
Like Mark Twain famously said, “I can live for two months on a good compliment.”
One of my daughters and her husband, who are also living on Moloka’i, came along to cheer me on and take some pictures. Thanks to Mark Moran for these great photos.
