Kaua‘i Historical Society talk set for Tuesday, July 21 in Lihu‘e

KHS brochure OB talk July 2015The Kaua‘i Historical Society ( www.kauaihistoricalsociety.org ) is hosting a talk by me on “How One Hawaiian Changed the History of Hawaiʻi and Kauaʻi” on Tuesday evening, July 21 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Lihue Parish Hall located behind King Auto off Haleko Road in Lihu‘e. Admission is free. The talk will focus on Kaua‘i-related incidents I uncovered in New England while doing research for my new book The Providential Life & Heritage of Henry Obookiah. In particular, I will tie in the Russian Fort Alexander and Fort Barclay at Princeville circa 1816 to the sea captain who brought Obookiah to New York City in 1809.
