Purple Maia Book Club – Kaiaulu: Gathering Tides by Mehana Blaich Vaughan
September 8 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
The tide is rising ahead of the early morning sun on the northeast coast of the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i. Waves rush singing onto the outer reef where two throw net fishermen stalk the surge. An elderly woman with her silver hair in a kerchief makes her way toward shore, two octopuses tucked in her mesh bag.
A book club meeting of the Purple Prize (www.purpleprize.com). Join us for discussion of Mehana Vaughan’s book, Kaiāulu. We’ll discuss its lessons about community resilience through mālama ʻāina and resource sharing.
