Event description

Description

South African writer Sisonke Msimang talks about her book "Always Another Country", where she interweaves her personal journey with her political awakening in America and Africa, her euphoria at returning after many years in exile and her disillusionment with the country’s new elites.

Taiye Selasi called Msimang’s book, A Memoir of Exile and Hope, an “artful meditation on exile and return, womanhood and motherhood unfolding against the backdrop of post-apartheid South Africa…”

Hosted by Vicky Mochama.
