Author Talk: Joseph Theroux

Thursday, October 18th at 3:00


Local author Joseph Theroux will be at the library for a book signing and to talk about his new book, "The White Kahuna."

It is 1893, Honolulu. Queen Liluokalani has been deposed and is under house arrest. Set against the backdrop of the overthrow of the Queen, Robert Louis Stevenson and Lloyd Osbourne investigate a series of decapitations and the theft of the Crown Jewels. When the Queen is accused of demanding the beheadings of political traitors, she is linked to the crimes, and the detectives must solve them in order to clear the Queen. 

Joseph Theroux has published two novels, "Black Coconuts, Brown Magic" and "The Devil's Throat." He has written fiction and historical articles for the Pacific Islands Monthly, New Pacific, Hawaii, Honolulu, Spirit of Aloha, Historic Nantucket, and the Journal of Pacific History. He lived in Samoa, Hawaii, and now resides on Cape Cod.
