Libraries host tribute to isles' beloved queen

By Cheryl Chee Tsutsumi

Meyer's great aunt, Emma Nawahi, was one of the queen's ladies-in-waiting, so she has special interest in the events that led to the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893 and the annexation of the islands to the United States five years later.</p>
