Sindiwe Magona is a national treasure, with almost as many books to her name as years to her life. Writer, poet, storyteller, actress, motivational speaker, educator and much more, she has received multiple international and national awards, honorary doctorates and accolades. She is also one of South Africa’s foremost advocates for children’s literature and mother-tongue writing. This is a great opportunity to have this legend sign your books, so bring them along (there will also be a few on sale).
Margie Clough, dynamite in a small package, is a prolific poet, with two collections published by Modjaji (At Least The Duck Survived and The Last To Leave), as well as several chapbooks and a short memoir. She often works in collaboration with her grand-daughter, well-known embroidery artist and graphic designer Danielle Clough, to produce books that are beautiful both inside and out.
Date and time: 6 March, 5.30 for 6pm. Entrance is free, and all are welcome. Please join us for a bite of fruit and a glass of wine. Margie will be hand-selling some of her books, so bring cash if you’re interested!
