In celebration of Queen Liliuokalani’s birthday, the first 100 first-time members that join at the Na Ohana level now through September 2, will receive a complimentary copy of The Diaries of Queen Liliuokalani of Hawaii by David Forbes and published by Hui Hanai.

This new publication presents for the first time, the diaries Queen Liliuokalani penned between 1885 and 1900 and reveal her experience as heir apparent and monarch of the Hawaiian Islands during one of the most intense, complicated, and politically charged eras in Hawaiian history. The 576-page hardcover also includes nearly 100 text illustrations.

Mahalo to longtime Palace supporter Karen Hofstad and Zita Cup Choy, Iolani Palace’s historian, for donating the books!

In addition to the new book, this special Na Ohana Membership entitles visitors to free admission to the Palace and the Palace Galleries for the whole family (2 adults and 4 children), discounts at the Palace shop, subscription to the membership newsletter, invitations and reserved seating for special events.

This promotion will continue through the Queen’s birthday, September 2, 1838, or while supplies last.
