Registrants of PAA's 10th International Symposium are invited to bring books with them to Rarotonga to contribute to An Ocean of Books' book drive. Please bring books written in English that are suitable for 12-17 year olds. Topics that interest boys are of special interest, but topics can range from age-appropriate novels to modern reference books with great images.
The mission of An Ocean of Books is to help educate the children of the Pacific by focusing on literacy. Working with schools, we will provide the books needed to help develop a life-long habit of reading. read more »
