In this week's Women's Words: A Story Time for Adults, we read Alice Bloch's short story "Learning the Hula." (Find it in the anthology Hers 2.) Even if you couldn't make it to hear the story in person, you'll enjoy these books if you want to explore the culture, landscape, and of course music and dance of this tropical paradise.
Adventurer's Hawaii : photographic glimpses of the Hawaiian Islands as seen by the hiker, kayaker, and adventurer by Peter Caldwell.

Plants and flowers of HawaiÊ»i / S.H. Sohmer and R. Gustafson.
