Hawaii - 'Lost Kingdom'

at 10:00 AM

Author Julia Flynn Siler joins us to discuss her new book about the rise and fall of Hawaii's royal family. We'll hear about Bay Area connections with the so-called sugar kings who controlled much of the arable land on the islands. And we'll meet a Hawaiian historian and a musician who'll perform traditional songs on the ukulele, including ones written by Hawaii's last Queen Lili'uokalani.

Guests:

Julia Flynn Siler, author of "Lost Kingdom: Hawaii's Last Queen, The Sugar Kings, and America's First Imperial Adventure" and contributing journalist for the Wall Street Journal

C. Ka'ala Carmack, ethnomusicologist (with a specialty in Hawaiian music), educator and musician

Noelani Arista, assistant professor of history at University of Hawaii at Manoa
