Ching biography in libraries soon
Each of Hawai'i's 51 public libraries will receive two copies of the biography of Clarence Ching, entitled "A Prophecy Fulfilled: The Story of Clarence T.C. Ching."
The donation was made by the foundation that bears the name of the late developer and philanthropist, through the Friends of the Library of Hawai'i's Makana Akamai ("gift of knowledge") book donation program.
The books will reach libraries soon.
Copies of the Ching biography are not in mainstream bookstores, but can also be found at these locations:
