Book Discussion: Moloka'i by Alan Brennert
Open to district residents only. Limit of 20 people.
Rachel Kalama is only seven years old when she is forced to leave Honolulu and join the leprosy settlement on the island of Moloka'i. Author Brennert portrays with elegiac honesty not only outcasts grasping for a fulfilling life but the history of the Hawaiian islands through the early twentieth century as foreigners forever alter their way of life.
