Forget-me-not Blues
by

Marita van der Vyver

 

 

 

A letter from Portugal makes Colette Cronjé remember everything she has spent
a lifetime trying to forget. The sender is a long-lost relative, found after a decades-long search,
and the letter is about saudade, the love that remains after its object has gone.
It’s a love that has shaped the lives of three generations of women, trapped between leaving and staying, and between what is unbearable to remember and impossible to forget.

Spanning seven decades of South Africa’s social and political evolution, recorded with insight,
accuracy and humour, Forget-me-not Blues is above all a novel about family, secrets and the small falsehoods and sweeping deceptions that keep us together while they tear us apart.

Death of an Idealist

In Search of Neil Aggett
by
 

Beverley Naidoo

 

 

  Beverley Naidoo’s biography, Death of an Idealist, examines the life of
the only white activist to die in custody.

Beverley will be in conversation with Horst Kleinschmidt,
himself an activist who spent time in prison.

A medical doctor who worked most of the week as an unpaid trade union organiser,
Neil Aggett’s stark non-materialism, shared by his partner Dr Elizabeth Floyd, aroused the suspicions. When their names appeared on a list of ‘Close Comrades’ prepared for ANC leaders in exile they were among a swathe of union activists detained in 1981.

Beverley Naidoo traces the transformation of the youngest child born to settler parents in Kenya
at the height of Mau Mau resistance to colonial rule. The book explores the metamorphosis of
a high-achieving, sports-loving white schoolboy into the 28-year-old whose coffin
was followed by thousands of workers through Johannesburg to his grave.

 

When: Wednesday 17 October 2012
