The Price of Paradise and The Value of Hawaii

Art Auditorium, UH Manoa

Monday, February 28, 2011 3:00 to 4:30 pm

All are invited.

Join us for a lively and challenging debate and comparison of the influential _The Price of Paradise_ publications (1992, 1993) and the more recent _The Value of Hawaii_ (2010), two essay projects that offer a range of timely and sobering analysis on issues ranging from the economy to the environment, education to cultural preservation, the government, social services, and more.
What motivated each publication, and what has changed? What do we value about our home, and what prices have we all paid/are willing to pay to continue to live here? Speakers will comment generally on the state and State of Hawai'i as they see it at the moment, and in particular, what they think the future holds, or should hold, for this to be a better place.

Featuring authors from both books: David Callies, Randall Roth, Susan Chandler, Deane Neubauer, and Jon Osorio. Moderated by Civil Beat reporter/host Sara Lin, and livestreamed at http://www.civilbeat.com. Books will be available for sale through UH Press.
Co-sponsored by Civil Beat.
