    In the museum shop, Star-Advertiser columnist and author Lee Cataluna and illustrator Cheyne Gallarde will sign copies of their book, “Ordinary ‘Ohana,” and Gallarde will sketch “Post-it portraits” of kids.

“Open Book” is the theme of today’s Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday, with activities from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Honolulu Museum of Art. In the museum shop, Star-Advertiser columnist and author Lee Cataluna and illustrator Cheyne Gallarde will sign copies of their book, “Ordinary ‘Ohana,” and Gallarde will sketch “Post-it portraits” of kids.

Artists Mariko Merritt and Lisa Shiroma will show how to make paper collages inspired by local children’s books, including “Island Toes,” which Merritt illustrated. Families can also view the film “The Little Prince,” based on the 1943 children’s book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, and bring their gently used books to swap.

Museum admission is free today; 900 S. Beretania St., 532-8700, honolulumuseum.org.

BOOK CLUB HIGHLIGHTS ‘GOYA’

In the era after El Greco and Velasquez and well before Picasso, Spain’s art scene was rocked by the spirited Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828). The biography “Goya” by Robert Hughes is this month’s reading choice by the Honolulu Museum of Art book club. Participants will meet from 1 to 3 p.m. April 26 and 29 in the lecture room below the museum’s Palm Court to discuss the book, followed by a tour of the “Goya’s Disasters of War” exhibit.

Museum admission is $10, free to members and those 17 and younger; 900 S Beretania Street, 532-8700, honolulumuseum.org.
