Sea People: The Puzzle of Polynesia by Christina Thompson, Exploration


Wednesday, Jan. 20: 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Could you cross the Pacific Ocean in a canoe? Join us for a discussion of “Sea People” by Christina Thompson to find out why and how early Polynesians were so willing to set off into the unknown. Our book discussion is designed for adults only — but the discussion guide included in the program cost will offer media suggestions and discussion questions suitable for children.

*Book available through LFPL or wherever books are sold
