Book signing with Patrick Stack

Author and Kaua‘i resident Patrick Stack released his novel, “Pineapple Upside Down,” earlier this month, according to a news release. Meet the author 5 p.m. Sept. 30 at Talk Story Bookstore in Hanapepe.

The book is “an up-market, edgy contemporary satire set in present day Honolulu.”

“Pineapple Upside Down” follows the spirited Grace Delacruz, an indigenous scholar and Hawaiian activist, as she explores her kuleana — her duty to her culture and her pursuit for Hawaiian sovereignty, according to the release.

This fast paced novel explores the complex Hawai’i of the present, and contains elements of mystery, intrigue, romance and dark-humor, all framed in healthy cynicism, the release states.

The novel is currently available through in paperback or e-book format. Copies of “Pineapple Upside Down” will be available at the book signing at Talk Story Bookstore Sept. 30.
