Bookstore 'pops up' in Waikiki

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:


The folks at Interisland Terminal are opening a temporary bookstore, Reed Space HONOLULU, on Thursday at the Waikiki Parc Hotel that will feature art, design and architecture titles.

Inventory at "Reed Space," meant to nurture intellectual and creative endeavors, was selected by jeffstaple (aka Jeffrey Ng), a graphic, Web and clothing designer, artist, deejay and writer. His Staple Design has created work for such big-name brands as Gap, Converse, HBO, Levi's, Nike, Microsoft, Random House and Puma.

The bookstore is a comment on the lack of independent bookstores in this town and the desire to see them return.

"Reed Space" will be open 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. daily through Aug. 8. Parking is by valet and free.

Other special events (held at Waikiki Parc, unless otherwise indicated):
