Unfamiliar FishesCome to our monthly book group to discuss Sarah Vowell's latest book, Unfamiliar Fishes, which covers the imperialist expansion of the United States into Hawaii. Piggy backing on her earlier book The Wordy Shipmates about New England Puritans, she now follows their descendants across another ocean as they follow their fortunes to Hawaii and try to Christianize and Americanize it.

With her characteristic humor and sense of the absurd, the author travels to Hawaii and tries to capture the unique blend of cultures that has developed there.  Blending the present and the past, Vowell captures an often forgotten part of American history.

Join us as we talk about manifest destiny, what happens when cultures collide and how we interact with the past.

All are welcome for the discussion, whether they have read the book or not.
