Frazier Book Signing

Author Frances Halia Nelson Frazier recently signed copies of her new memoir, Halia of Hawaii, A Legacy of Language, at an island Borders. The book’s editor, Dawn Fraser Kawahara, read excerpts to an audience of about 50. Frazier, who turned 96 last month, is a designated living treasure of Kaua’i and well-known translator of the Hawaiian language. She studied under and worked with Mary Kawena Pukui and received numerous awards for her translation of Kamehameha and His Warrior Kekuhaupio, a serial that appeared in a Hawaiian language newspaper in the 1920s.
