Saturday: Author discusses memoir of life in Hawaii at library


Menlo Park author Bill Fernandez will sign and discuss his recent memoir, "Rainbows over Kapa'a," at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 1, at the Menlo Park Library, 800 Alma St., in the downstairs meeting room.

The former mayor of Sunnyvale, Mr. Fernandez is a retired Santa Clara County Superior Court judge who has been writing a series of historical novels from the indigenous Hawaiian point of view. Go to for more information on Mr. Fernandez and his latest book.
