  1. Amazing time at Rånui library on International Women’s day reading about arranged marriage in Strength of a Name. We were discussing marriage in different cultures & times in history. We tried to imagine what it might be like for a young person to put the needs of their community before their own personal feelings… We talked about what life was like for women in 1926 & when we were young & getting married.

  2. We had a great reading at Selwyn today of the “1944” chapter from “Strength of a Name”. The story provided a wonderful insight into Fijian village life in the 1940’s, their understanding of natures storm cues and their calm preparation for the storm. There was some discussion on the appropriateness of telling white lies to young children to soften the impact of terrible events, or whether they were better in the long term having been told the truth.
