Don’t miss an evening with Welcome Mandla Lishivha, author of Boy on the Run (30 Aug)
 More about the book!

Bridge Books and Jacana Media invite you to an intimate evening with author Welcome Mandla Lishivha to discuss their memoir Boy on the Run.

Guests are invited to engage the author over a light dinner spread of ‘small plates’ in the beautifully appointed Rand Club in Marshalltown, Johannesburg’s Literary District.

‘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.
