Actor Terence Knapp will Present 'Life and Legacy of Father Damien'

Maui News: Dec. 9th: - In commemoration of the recent canonization of Father Damien De Veuster to sainthood, award-winning actor and scholar Terence Knapp will present "The Life and Legacy of Father Damien" at Kaimuki Public Library on Sunday, December 20 at 2 p.m. The free program will be conducted in the Adult Reading Room.

Of all the parts the veteran actor has played, Knapp identifies most with Father Damien. His role in "Damien," a dramatic monologue by Aldyth Morris, has defined the actor ever since he first presented it at Kennedy Theatre in 1976. Knapp will share information and his insights about Father Damien of Molokai, who was acknowledged by Pope Benedict XVI on October 11, 2009 at the Vatican as Hawaii's first saint.

The one-hour program is suitable for all ages. Contact the library two weeks in advance if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is needed. Kaimuki Public Library is located at 1041 Koko Head Avenue, corner of Koko Head and Harding Avenues. For more information, please call the Library at 733-8422.
