  • In Fire & Fury: 35 Years of Eruptions at Kilauea Volcano, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser chronicles that 35-year span with over 200 photos, many from Star-Advertiser photographers who covered the geological marvel over the decades. Special fold-out pages introduce six phases of the eruptive activity, with stories and maps to remind readers of the events and how they impacted the surrounding communities. “It’s important to note that Kilauea is still an active volcano that will erupt in the future, and associated hazards have not changed,” reported the U.S. Geological Survey’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
  • A Portuguese-Hawai‘i Kitchen: The Local Foods of Island Portuguese explores Hawai‘i’s Portuguese cooking starting with the familiar soups and breads, on to basic traditional dishes and special festive recipes. The collection incorporates the initial simple resourceful diet of major proteins and greens grown in backyard gardens and the adaptation to locally available ingredients as the Portuguese adjusted to island life.
