Library Association Of Samoa

Public talk by Lani Wendt Young at the Nelson Memorial Library to celebrate the launching of her new book “Galu Afi – Wave of Fire” – 28 September – 3:00PM

Library Association of Samoa members and members of the public are warmly invited to hear Lani Wendt talk about her new book “Galu Afi – Wave of Fire”. 

The book is a narrative story that weaves together the experiences of many different people – survivors, rescue and medical workers and others. Work on the project began three weeks after the tsunami, with the interviewing of survivors in affected areas. There are chapters on the experience of survivors in American Samoa and Niuatoputapu. The book includes some photos as well as a listing of those who lost their lives.

Proceeds from the book will be donated to ongoing tsunami relief/rebuilding in the affected areas. 

More details about the book, including where it can be purchased can be found on Lani Wendt’s website.

There will also be a public display of many of the photographs used in the book at Nelson Memorial Library.
