  • Waialua Public Library Authors' Night featuring Jerry Burris and Ken Kobayashi (Judge Sam King: A Memoir)

    Friends of Waialua Public Library's Authors Night program will be held on Thursday, March 6th, 6:30 PM.  This year's event will feature a presentation and book signing with Jerry Burris and Ken Kobayashi, co-collaborators on Judge Sam King: A Memoir. The annual event is a wonderful way for attendees to meet local authors and book purchases help benefit the Waialua Public Library.

    When Judge Samuel P. King died in 2010 at the age of 94, Hawai‘i Gov. Neil Abercrombie called him “the heart and soul of Hawai‘i.” Now, in Judge King’s own words, Judge Sam King: A Memoir presents the story of the man who not only witnessed Hawaiian history but helped shape the future of the islands he loved. In 2009 journalists Jerry Burris and Ken Kobayashi began a series of recorded conversations with Judge King, meeting several times a week in his office. After Judge King’s passing a year later, the duo continued work on the book, with support from the King family, combining the recorded conversations with an oral history conducted by the judge’s former law clerk, Susan Lee Waggener, and the trove of writings, news stories, speeches and other material carefully saved and organized by Judge King’s wife, Anne, and Rebecca Berry, his secretary for much of his legal career.

    In addition to Judge Sam King: A Memoir, the event will feature other local titles: Song of Planet Earth by Leighton Chong;  Kohola, King of the Whales by Vincent Daubenspeck;  and Hawaiian Herbal Medicine by June Gutmanis (dec.) presented by Waimea Williams.

    The Waialua Library is located across from the old Waialua Sugar Mill. Authors Night is a free event and will include refreshments and door prizes.  Please call 10 days in advance if special accommodations are needed. Phone: 637-8286.
