I was excited to hear that Dr. Sankaran Krishna of The University of Hawaii was coming as a guest lecturer in November.
Since he's coming, I decided to brush up on my Hawaiian history. (I've always been fascinated with Hawaiian culture anyway).
For those of you who want to learn more about Hawaii, there are some good books out there.
There are many great books on Hawaii's history, but one of the best places to start is with the formation of the Hawaiian islands, vividly described in David E. Eyre's "By Wind, By Wave: An Introduction to Hawaii's Natural History" (Bess Press, 2000).
I encourage all serious writers and historians to attend.
