I'm so excited to announce that there are two book launches planned for The Scattering, one in Botswana and one in Namibia!
The Botswana launch will be in Maun on the 29th of June at the Maun Library from 6:30 pm. It is being organised in conjunction with the poetry group Poetavango.
There will be two poets who will perform poetry in Otjiherero: Mr Charles Kakomee and Mr James Mutenge. Music will be provided by Katini. I will be reading an excerpt of the novel and will be interviewed by Poetavango member and avid literature lover, Uaisako Marenge.
Books will be on sale and I will be available for signing. Hope you can make it!
The launch will be in Windhoek at the National Assembly, in the restaurant there. It will be on the 20th of July starting at 6 pm. Again it will be a celebration and will include music and poetry, a reading and an interview. Books will also be on sale.
I am so honoured to announce that Professor Peter Katjavivi, historian and Speaker of the National Assembly, will be introducing me at the launch.
Poet Charles Kakomee will perform poetry in Otjiherero and I will be in conversation with award-winning writer Wame Molefhe. Motswana singer Katini will be providing music.
Mark your calendars and tell your friends!I hope to see you there.
