Supporting Literature
Papua New Guinea

'Reading is very important. Many of my people do not read at home because books are written by people whose background is not that of Papua New Guinea.

Our people do not want to read these. True, some 
people want to try, but they
cannot afford to buy books.

I think I will try to write about this country
when I leave school.

The books should
be small, simple,
and cheap.'

Sir Paulias Matane
