Come for a mug of sop, a glass of dop and enthralling stories by Kobus Moolman when he launches his new collection The Swimming Lesson and Other Stories (UKZN Press) on Friday 9 June at 6.30pm in the Caritas Library at Temenos.

This collection by multiple award-winning poet, author and playwright, Kobus Moolman, has been described as a volume of unconventional potency. Written in a range of styles, voices and genres, The Swimming Lesson and Other Stories is a collection that stands out for its unusual perspectives; its frank, often uncomfortable treatment of taboo topics, and its creative risk-taking.

Kobus is an Associate Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Western Cape. He has won numerous awards for his writing, including the 2015 Glenna Luschei Prize for African Poetry, and has presented his work at literary festivals in South Africa, Ireland and Canada.

R30.00 per person payable at the door, but please contact Jenny Johnson 023 6251908 / 084 675 1164 / to reserve your place and for catering purposes.

Copies of “The Swimming Lesson and Other Stories” will be on sale @ R150.00. Proceeds from the evening will go to The MAC Project
