Duke Kahanomoku by Laurie Calkhoven

In this month of fives, I'm celebrating my FIFTH book for Simon Spotlight's YOU SHOULD MEET series.

Duke was a full blooded Hawaiian who grew up on the beach. He took part in four Olympics and broke world records in swimming in 1912 and 1920. Along the way he showed the east coast and Australia what surfing was and became the "Father of Modern Surfing."

And I'm on deadline, so that's all folks.


  1. Congratulations and best of luck getting the next book out into the world Laurie! You're an inspiration to me>

  2. You write on so many cool topics, dear Laurie! Cheering you on to your deadline!
