A trip to beautiful Cape Town

'The Tavern of the Seas'

   
  
Next Sunday I’ll be flying to Cape Town, the Mother City, the Tavern of the Seas. I’m looking forward to catching up with old friends, meeting new poetry friends, reading at Off the Wall in Observatory on Monday, 27 June, and launching The Suitable Girl (co-published by Pindrop Press and Modjaji Books) at The Book Lounge on Tuesday, 28 June.
 
If you’re in the area I’d love to see you on Monday or Tuesday evening – or both!

Launch at The Book Lounge
 
 

The Book Lounge, Cape Town

  
 
The Suitable Girl is being launched at The Book Lounge, an independent bookshop in the Eastern Precinct of Cape Town City Centre. I’ve heard so many great things about Mervyn Sloman, the Loungers and the wide range of local and international books available on The Book Lounge’s shelves. I hope to have at least fifteen minutes to browse and buy …
   
I’m thrilled that Helen Moffett will be introducing me at the launch and can’t wait to see Colleen Higgs again. Colleen is the inspiration behind Modjaji Books and the last time we saw each other was at the Cape Town Book Fair in 2006. It’s been far too long.
 
 
Date: Tuesday, 28 June 2011
  
Time: 18h00 – 19h30
 
Venue: The Book Lounge, corner of Roeland and Buitenkant Streets
 
Tel: 021 462 2425
 
Google map directions.
  
There’ll be wine sponsored by Leopard’s Leap, soul food and books – lots and lots of books.
 
Please RSVP.
