Honolulu’s annual Hawai‘i Book and Music Festival attracts thousands of participants every year in late spring.  The two-day event doesn't just bring noteworthy authors to town. There are children’s activities, food books and demos, even dance and music concerts, and discussions about local issues. After 13 years, the festival is looking forward to serving more people across the state.

Art Biennials are big business, as you can tell by the proliferation of bi and triennials around the globe over the last twenty years.  Cities launch these high profile art extravaganzas to attract tourists, sales, and cultural cache.  The Honolulu Biennial has just opened in nine venues around town, HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on how to make the most of it.
