Bookstore Pops Up In Kaimuki

Kaimuki has joined the pop-up shopping craze with help from Hawaii Book Publishers Association and Mutual Publishing, which will conduct a Pop-Up Bookstore now through Dec. 20 at 1215 Center St.

New books from a dozen publishers will be on sale, many for discounted prices, and a portion of the proceeds will go to another Kaimuki group, the nonprofit Aloha Harvest, which is dedicated to feeding Hawaii’s hungry. Donations of nonperishable food also will be accepted.

The pop-up shop is located in Mutual Publishing’s space in the Franklin Variety Building behind Bank of Hawaii. Free parking is available across the street.

Art and gift items from Na Mea Hawaii will be available, in addition to books from Bamboo Ridge, Bess Press, BeachHouse Press, Bishop Museum Press, Calabash Books, Island Paradise Publishing, Kamehameha Publishing, Kahala Press, Slate Ridge Press and Watermark Publishing.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 2 pm. Saturdays (Dec. 6, 13 and 20 only). For more information, call 732-1709.
