Author David Davis’s book, Waterman: The Life and Times of Duke Kahanamoku, highlights the life of America’s first superstar swimmer. Duke Kahanamoku (1890-1968) set dozens of world records, and profoundly influenced the worlds of swimming and surfing.
“Kahanamoku’s deep connection to his homeland was equally noteworthy. He was born when Hawaii was an independent kingdom and later served as the sheriff of Honolulu during Pearl Harbor and World War II. He was the globetrotting “Ambassador of Aloha” and died not long after Hawaii attained statehood.”
Join the City of Beverly Hills on Tuesday, July 26, at 7:00pm to welcome David Davis as he shares stories of Duke Kahanamoku, followed by a question-and-answer and book signing in the Library Auditorium.
