N. Kohala Library to hold Hawaii history talk story

North Kohala Public Library in Kapaau will conclude the winter series of Hawaii’s history “talk story” sessions at 6:30 p.m. on April 21 with North Kohala historian, Boyd D. Bond.

The final program in the series will focus on Hawaii in wartime and examine the impact of the Civil War, World War I and World War II on Hawaii. Each of these wars had a significant impact on the history, culture, and economics of Hawaii.

Boyd Bond’s knowledge of Hawaii’s history stems from his academic studies and from a lifetime spent in Hawaii as a sixth generation descendent of early western settlers in Hawaii. Bond was raised in Hawaii in a sugar plantation family, living on plantations throughout the state.

Call the North Kohala Public Library at 889-6655 for more information and to register for the program. Contact the library three weeks in advance if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is required.
