The spirit of Lewis Nkosi alive and well at the launch of Writing Home

Writing HomeAn excellent launch of Writing Home: Lewis Nkosi on South African Writingwas held on Tuesday, 31 May at Ike’s Books and Collectables – a favourite venue of Nkosi’s, one section of which has the sign, “Lewis Nkosi’s Shebeen”.

It was definitely the best venue for the launch, which attracted a large, enthusiastic and interested crowd of people.

After Debra Primo introduced the two editors, Lindy Stiebel regaled us with her memories of working with – and the family friendship with – Lewis Nkosi.

She shared a delightful email from him among some other very entertaining and insightful anecdotes. Michael Chapman read some extracts from this very accessibly written book and included details of meeting with Lewis here and abroad. The spirit of Lewis Nkosi definitely joined us!

Here are some photographs from the evening:
