Unathi Magubeni will be reading from his debut novel, Nwelezelanga: The Star Child, published by Jacana.

“Magubeni handles the sacred subject in a way that neither slants nor meddles. For this reason, when African traditionalists learn of Magubeni’s book they will be nervously curious but will discover that they needn’t have been. It will be a rare gift for the scholars, and we ordinary readers will not remember our lives before Magubeni happened.” writes Thando Mgqolozana, author of A Man Who is Not a Man, Unimportance and Hear Me Alone. Signed copies will be available for sale.
