Join Clinton Chauke at Bridge Books for the launch of Born in Chains: The Diary of an Angry ‘Born-Free’
More about the book!
Having been raised alongside his two sisters in a remote village bordering the Kruger National Park and a squatter camp outside Pretoria, Clinton Chauke knows what it’s like to be born dirt-poor in South Africa.
In Born In Chains: The Diary of an Angry ‘Born-Free’ Clinton writes about negotiating the pitfalls and lifelines of a young life: crime and drugs, football, religion, friendship, school, circumcision and, ultimately, becoming a man. Throughout it all, he displays determination as well as a self-deprecating humour that will keep you turning the pages till the end.
Clinton’s story is one that will give you hope that even in a sea of poverty there are those that refuse to give up and, ultimately, succeed.
Date: 13 June 2018
