Tupaia in Tahiti






June 25, 9:30 to 11:30 am, I will be at the wonderful Odyssey bookstore in Papeete, Tahiti, signing books, and getting acquainted with the proprietors of the store, the publishers of the French edition, and (hopefully) the talented translators of this edition.

It's the French edition of the story of an amazing Tahitian, Tupaia, priest and master navigator, who shipped on the Endeavour with Joseph Banks and Captain Cook, and suffered privations that he could not possibly have imagined before he embarked on this stunning adventure.

See you there!

How fab to be signing the French edition in Tahiti itself!

Apart from just being a wonderful book, the paper version of Tupaia is so beautiful that I sometimes take it from our lounge bookcase just to admire it.

Thank you, thank you! It is definitely going to be so neat to see Tupaia's biography selling (hopefully) on Tupaia's island.
