We were able to buy the Sunday Times Fiction Prize winner  The Mercy of Water  by Karen Jayes and Alan Paton Prize Endings and Beginnings by Redi Thlabi with money from the Literary Teas.

The Man Booker long list is out.

We only have Harvest by Jim Crace and Transatlantic by Colum McCann. If anyone has others they would like to donate to us (Fish Hoek Library), we’d be delighted!
