Kalk Bay Books

Join us for a celebration of a remarkable woman.


No one in South Africa is more synonymous with magazines than Jane Raphaely.
Since launching Fairlady in 1965, Jane has been a pivotal presence in the media industry.

In her frank and funny memoir, written for the thousands of women who have asked her
to tell them ‘how she did it’, the doyenne of magazine publishing tells a great deal more than the
herstory of women’s magazines. This book is impossible to put down,
and should come with a warning. It is intended to change women’s lives for the better and,
as Jane’s story proves, print is the most powerful weapon in the world,
in the right hands, at the right time.

Jane will talk about her life and the book with one of her former writers,
Marianne Thamm
– herself a formidable voice in the media.

When: Wednesday 27 June 2012
Where: Kalk Bay Books, 124 Main Road, Kalk Bay
Time: 6 for 6.30pm

RSVP: by 25 June to

021 788 2266.

Please note: this is a free event but RSVPs are required for catering purposes.

Copies of JANE RAPHAELY unedited will be available for purchase and Jane will sign books on the evening.
