Barry Pell—Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia: Unraveling the Mysteries of the South Pacific

Thursday, September 19, 2019

The South Pacific has been celebrated in literature, art, and music. Yet, the island countries that dot the Pacific Ocean are mysterious unknowns to most Americans. Barry Pell has traveled throughout both the south and north Pacific countries and territories. In this program, he will explain the distinctions between the regions of Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia in terms of their geography, history, culture and people. The program will be accompanied by Mr. Pell’s photography in the islands

This is the first of three presentations, and is sponsored by the Library Foundation of Needham.
