He Leo Hou: A New Voice - Hawaiian Playwrights


Winner of the Hawaiʻi Book Publishers Association Ka Palapala Poʻokela Award for Excellence in Literature.

This book is the first collection of plays by Hawaiian playwrights and features the work of Alani Apio, Tammy Hailiʻopua Baker, Lee Cataluna, and Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl.

A must-have for teachers and followers of Hawaiʻi literature and politics, He Leo Hou opens up for discussion many of the controversial issues absent from nonnative literature. —Honolulu Weekly

Anyone with some time to spare should consider this book. The playwrights are part Hawaiian, but the plays are not exclusive to Hawaiian readers. Anybody can enjoy these stories and should. —'Plays reflect Hawaiian tradition' - Ka Leo
