[BOOK SALE] If you like books—old, out-of-print, dusty, wonderful
books you can’t find at Borders—then you might want to head over to the
Bailey House this weekend for their Hawaiiana, Antiquarian and
Historical Book Sale. Prices start at 10? (yes, you read that right).
The sale includes old stamps, yellowed, historical newspapers and
Hawaiian records, as well as new books like Spirit of the Village,
a memoir by Jackie Pias Carlin about life growing up in a Paia
plantation camp. In fact, Carlin will be there to autograph copies.
It’s all going to benefit something called the “Index to The Maui News
1951-1973 project,” which sounds rather important but probably not
nearly as interesting to read straight through as the 1894 edition of
Isabella Bird’s Six Months in the Sandwich Islands,
which will be auctioned off along with 30 other rare items. For more
information about the sale, call 572-9979. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]
