The Sendibeng Book Club in Guateng, South Africa hosted Siphiwo Mahala in a book club meet centered on his new book Can Themba: The Making and Breaking of the Intellectual Tsotsi.
The book club, which describes itself as a “great setting for Afrocentric, creative, opinionated and open-minded people,” regularly meets to discuss books.
Can Themba was an iconic Drum-era writer and journalist. Mahala brings his storied career to life in a vivid depiction of his evolution as a cultural figure. South African author and Mahala’s dear friend Nig Mhlongo was at the packed event where attendees discussed the book over wine and other refreshments.
