Don’t miss the Literary Alliance’s 2nd anniversary and a book discussion of Lerato Mogoatlhe’s Vagabond at Love Books (22 June)
More about the book!
The Literary Alliance invite you to their 2nd birthday celebrations and a book discussion of Vagabond: Wandering Through Africa on Faith by Lerato Mogoatlhe.
Vagabond is the story of Mogoatlhe’s life and travels around Africa.
‘Sometime in November 2007 while working as an entertainment and lifestyle journalist, a job that had seen me party and hang out with local and international stars, including John Legend, I realised that I was over my life in South Africa,’ she says.
‘My job was fab and my life should have been great but it wasn’t because who cares if you get to pose with Beyoncé? I had had enough of writing about people living their wildest dreams. It was time to see what the story of my life would be. I had always had wanderlust, especially for Africa. And so I made the decision to leave South Africa, an urgent need that consumed me and almost drove me to a point of insanity. I planned to spend three months in Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Togo and Benin.’
Date: Saturday 22 June 2019
Venue: Love Books, Bamboo Centre, 53 Rustenburg Road, Melville, Joburg
