Authors of ‘Grandmothers Whisper’ host encore discussion

Inette Miller and her husband, ‘Iokepa Hanalei ‘Imaikalani, will be hosting an encore book signing and discussion of “Grandmothers Whisper: Ancient Voices, Timeless Wisdom, a Modern Love Story.”

The book signing is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at Church of the Pacific in Princeville. The event is free and open to the public.

After spending more than a year touring their book on the mainland, the couple came home to Kaua‘i, and hosted their first book signing last month at Kaua‘i Society of Artists. Because of the event’s success, the couple decided to host one more event discussing their spiritual journey, Miller said.

While the couple has been flooded with offers to share their story, Miller said the Tuesday’s discussion will be the their last for the time being.

“Grandmothers Whisper” chronicles the spiritual journey of Miller, who met her husband on a weeklong vacation on Kaua‘i. Since the publication of the book, the two traveled across the mainland sharing their story.

The book was awarded the Visionary Award for Book of the Year, 2011 last month in Denver.

“Ever since the release of “Grandmothers Whisper,” our Lihu’e Borders bookstore had been planning to celebrate the book with a powerful book event and party,” Miller said in a press release.

“But painfully, the demands of the book tour kept us from home all these months, and it turned out that the tour outlasted our wonderful book store.

“When I returned to Borders empty parking lot, and the black windows of our bookstore, I felt as though my heart had been ripped from me, and from the island. Dear friends and book lovers have stepped up to host each of these two ‘Welcome Home’ book events. We are excited and grateful.”
