KCC, museum centers of islands’ wildlife events

Susan Middleton, whose March scheduled slide show and appearances were washed away by the heavy rains and flooding, has re-scheduled her Kaua‘i visit for this week, organizers said in a press release.

A show, based on the book she and partner David Liittschwager co-authored, “Archipelago: Portraits of Life in the World’s Most Remote Island Sanctuary,” on the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, is up at the Kaua‘i Community College Learning Resource Center now through Saturday.

Hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon, with special viewing hours from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. this Friday.

That Friday-night viewing precedes her free lecture and slide show in the KCC Performing Arts Center, “The Northwestern Hawaiian Islands: A Visual Journey,” at 7 p.m.

She is half of the Emmy-award-winning team of Liittschwager & Middleton.

“Archipelago: Portraits of Life in the World’s Most Remote Island Sanctuary” was recently published by officials of the National Geographic Society.

She will give a slide presentation showing portraits of the flora and fauna and landscapes of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, taking the audience on a visual journey to this little-known part of the Hawaiian archipelago.

The slide presentation will be followed by the showing of a new short film on the making of “Archipelago.” Representatives of schools and other groups are invited to schedule visits to the KCC LRC exhibit by calling 245-8233.

On Wednesday at noon, Middleton will be live on the Garden Show on KKCR radio, 90.9 FM and 91.9 FM, and live streaming at kkcr.org.

At 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, she will give a presentation at the Princeville Public Library.

During a special ‘Ohana Day presentation at the Kaua‘i Museum on Rice Street in Lihu‘e on Saturday at 11 a.m., she will offer a presentation on her and Liittschwager’s latest book, “Remains of a Rainbow: Rare Plants and Animals of Hawai‘i.” A “Remains” exhibit at the Kaua‘i Museum continues through Oct. 15.
