If you are interested in joining, please contact Sheryl Lynch at the library 808-697-7868 or email 

Our February 22nd book is: West with the Night by Beryl Markham

Markham, often described as “the first person” to fly the Atlantic east to west in a solo non-stop flight, chronicles her many adventures in her memoir. From Amazon: Beryl Markham’s West with the Night is a true classic, a book that deserves the same acclaim and readership as the work of her contemporaries Ernest Hemingway, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and Isak Dinesen.
