Celebrate World Pride Day at the launch of Welcome Mandla Lishivha’s memoir Boy on the Run (28 Jun)
 More about the book!

Jacana Media and Exclusive Books invite you to the launch of Welcome Mandla Lishivha’s memoir Boy on the Run!

Lishivha will be in conversation with Pan African queer feminist, activist and author Rosie Motene.

‘It is the godly feeling of dancing like a goddess and snapping on a beat with sheer joy that makes all the trouble life demands worthwhile. In these moments, of intensive freedom from pain, of joy that knows no bound and peace that passeth all understanding, I become that kid again, dancing with my mother.’

Lishivha’s exquisitely crafted memoir is unlike anything you’ve ever read. Boy on the Run is a staggeringly beautiful and honest exploration of identity through grief, love and friendship, giving us, the readers, a glorious song of self-expression.
