FREE Hawaiian Island Online Networking: Meet-up

Online event

Aloha Guys!

This is a hostless event but I truly love. I've gone a couple of times and I have deeply enjoyed it and the format.

It will be a zoom meeting format and you will get to talk and meet different people on the island. You can showcase your business, work, or whatever you do, so have your elevator speech ready.

How the Event works:
We are going to have two breakout sessions and each session will last about 20 minutes. There will be
about 5-6 people in each room. The first thing you do when you enter the room is to select a time
keeper. Each person gets two minutes to share what they do and how they can help each other. After
everyone goes you can then ask questions and discover ways to collaborate.

It's a great way to stay in the know and meet business minded people. I hope to see you there!!!

Microvolunteering: Landscaping for those in need

Kahauiki Village

Aloha friends… Kahauiki Village, one of Hawaii’s premier low-income housing programs is needing our help as they look to clean and expand their program. This is a great event to give back to our community and help others in need.

This program was designed for families who are trying to escape the confines of homelessness.

You can learn more about this program at: https://youtu.be/jKCuCrG8pOQ

NEW DATE 5/21 -- May Book Chat: Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro

Barefoot Beach Cafe @ Queen's Surf Beach

Please NOTE: the new date is May 21 at 4 p.m.. I apologize if the rescheduling (from 5/14 to 5/21) causes any inconvenience.

Location: Barefoot Beach Cafe (https://www.barefootbeachcafe.com/)

This event is also listed with another Meetup group, but you only need to RSVP to one event.

Join us for a discussion of Nobel Prize laureate Kazuo Ishiguro’s Klara and the Sun, a novel set in an uncomfortably near future, told from the perspective of Klara, a solar-powered artificial intelligence companion designed for children who learn in isolation, mediated by technology. Sound ominously familiar?

Ishiguro’s novels form a coherent body of work, including Remains of the Day (1989) and Never Let Me Go (2005), both of which were adapted into film. He is known for writing about memory and obsolescence, asking what it is like to live in a world that has passed you by. What happens to the people who must be cast aside so that others can move forward?
Consider the characters Ishiguro gives voice to: not the human, but the clone; not the lord, but the servant. Through these characters, readers slowly develop a sense of human fragility, delusion, and mortality.
The exact date, time, and location of our discussion may change as it gets closer, but the idea is to have it in May, in-person at an outdoor venue like Barefoot Beach Cafe or nearby. The book is relatively new, but I had no problems getting it from the state library. I hope you will join me for this discussion!
