Author Event -- The Goodfather -- 11:00 - 1:00
July 14, 2018 –
Larry Mehau has been called the "godfather" of crime and "perhaps the most powerful man in Hawai'i since Kamehameha the Great", although he has never been charged with a crime. The Goodfather, The Life of Larry Mehau in His Own Words (And A Few Others) describes Larry Mehau's powerful nature - physically, mentally, spiritually, financially, and politically. Don Chapman is an award-winning Honolulu writer-editor who was the only journalist that Mehau trusted enough to sit down with and share the exclusive details of his life. Those interviews are the basis of the Goodfather, and Chapman adds his own commentary as well as words from Mehau's friends and associates, complemented by more than 100 historical photos.
