Tupaia a Tahitian bestseller






On June 25, a signing was held at the wonderful Odyssey bookstore in Papeete, Tahiti.


There I had the pleasure of meeting Liliana Meslin, owner of 'Ura Publishing, which produced the beautiful French edition of Tupaia.


Not only was she charming, but she had the great news that Tupaia is a local bestseller.  As one of the many people who turned up to talk to me commented, the book has given Tahitians their own great hero.
