June 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Rising Tide: Among the Islands and Atolls of the Pacific Ocean

In ‘The Rising Tide: Among the Islands and Atolls of the Pacific Ocean’, Tom Bamforth shows us the people of the islands, their cultures and how they live in these remote and increasingly challenging places.

From uprisings in New Caledonia to tsunamis in Tonga, this is a book about interaction, race, colonisation, climate change, nuclear testing, resistance, cultural preservation, urban life, the tastiness of well roasted pig, and the pleasures of canoeing at dusk.

Tom Bamforth is a writer and aid worker, working in humanitarian response and international development.

 

The author talk is followed by question time and the opportunity for book signing.

There is seating for 100 people and standing room is available.

Seating is on a first come, first served basis.

If you have specific accessibility or seating requirements, please contact the library prior to the event.
