   If you’re looking for a welcoming place that mingles books and conversation, Revolution Books has been providing that space for over 38 years.  With bookstores down to a one handed count in Honolulu, HPR’s Noe Tanigawa visited a spot even many long time Honolulu residents have missed. 

Revolution Books’ Indiegogo campaign to keep them going concludes March 20th.  Check the HPR website for links.

Local poets Rajiv Mohabir and Jaimie Guzman will be giving a reading at Revolution Books on April 19th, 3pm.  Revolution Books is located just Diamond Head of Puck’s Alley on the second floor above Imanas-tei.
