What better way to kick off a week of International Women's Day 2022 (March 8) celebrations than with news of Hibiscus Three Publishing Award 2020 Recipient, Thyatira Kaupa's recent Meet the Author event in Port Moresby.

Published under the annual Hibiscus Three Publishing Award initiative, Ms Kaupa's debut Poetry collection, Listen, was the centrepiece for a small group of avid readers who attended an evening of dinner and literary conversation with the Papua New Guinean Author.

Guests had the opportunity to collect their pre-ordered Writers Box containing; a copy of Listen, a journal from the Hibiscus Three Essentials Stationery range, pens and sticky notes all nestled alongside a small bouquet of everlasting flowers from Simbu Province (PNG).

A special highlight of the gathering was an Author Reading by Ms Kaupa, whom selected several poems from her debut title of captivating pieces including; The Quintessence of Lily Walker, Thunderclouds, and Web of Fabricated Belief .

Hibiscus Three is delighted to see the support Ms Kaupa has received following the publication of Listen, and its reach throughout PNG, Australia and globally.

We thank the avid Papua New Guinean readers and supporters of PNG woman- authored books, who attended the Meet the Author evening, and their purchase of the Writers Box. All purchases from Hibiscus Three books and stationery contribute directly to Hibiscus Three's ongoing efforts to publish and promote Papua New Guinean writers and authors.

Many thanks to our good friends and small team at Dasor Development Solutions Limited Limited, who did a marvellous job of organising and and hosting this special literary event.
