Don’t miss the launch of In Our Own Words: Nurses on the Front Line at The Book Lounge in Cape Town (Tues)
 More about the book!

Jonathan Ball Publishers and The Book Lounge invite you to the launch of In Our Own Words: Nurses on the Front Line by Siedine Coetzee, Hester Klopper and Jonathan Jansen.

‘These beautifully told stories of saving lives, facing death and fear – and of stubborn hope – are a reminder of the value of nursing to society.’ – Thuli Madonsela

Jansen will facilitate the discussion, with fellow authors Siedine, Hester and nurses that contributed to the book.

This book brings together deeply personal stories of caring for patients in wards and ICU, of feeling overwhelmed, and experiencing the fear of getting infected and passing Covid on to their families. There are also moving tales of personal growth and finding renewed purpose. In Our Own Words shows the extreme resilience of nurses – even in the face of adversity. And that at the core of a ‘true’ nurse remains the commitment to the patient.
