Hi Darryl, Would like to make direct contact with you regarding your book. My email is

The National Library would probably like a couple of copies.

Best to send it to someone you know in PNG and get them to hand deliver it.

I'd be glad to donate a few copies of the Chalkies book to PNG, preferably to organisations that might share the book around.

I understand there is currently no public libraries network in PNG that might do this. Are there other options?

There are some, but very few, public libraries in PNG but there are a number of institutions and groups that would appreciate and benefit from this kind gesture. I'll provide you with some names and contacts. Perhaps readers might like to do the same via this blog - KJ

How can PNG people buy a copy of this book?

As we are well aware, Papua New Guineans - often lacking credit cards and reliable post services - often face considerable difficulties in making purchases overseas, even where they can afford to do so. Asking a friend or contact in Australia to make the purchase would seem to be one viable option - KJ
