This Saturday, come to the Book Launch for a new book from UH Press titled The ʻUkulele: A History by Jim Tranquada and John King.  Tranquada will be hosting a talk story session on the book that he and late ʻukulele master John King began many years ago.  Learn about the fascinating history of the ʻukulele, enjoy delicious food, buy a copy of the book and get it signed, and talk story.  Best of all, they’re encouraging you to bring your ukulele and join in the fun!

This event is free and open to the public.  It will be held this Saturday, July 21 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. and will be held at Native Books/Nā Mea Hawaiʻi located at the ʻewa end of Ward Warehouse.  For more information, contact the book store at (808) 596-8885.
