“TALEMAOT: Solomon stories of peace and conflict” is a collection of creative writing on the topical issues facing the country today by Solomon Islands writers and includes poems, short stories and short film scripts.

The publication of the book is made possible thanks to the kind support of the British High Commission in Solomon Islands and the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) Strengthening Capacities for Peace and Development (CPAD) project.
Books are available to purchase from the Museum shop and Lime Lounge cafe in Honiara. An online version will be available in 2014.
