Join Masande Ntshanga and SJ Naude for a Literary Crossroads Event at the Goethe-Institut in Joburg

Invitation to Literary Crossroads

The Goethe-Institut Johannesburg invites you to another event in their Literary Crossroads – with Masande Ntshanga and SJ Naudé.

The discussion is entitled Chronists of Change and will take place on Tuesday, 2 June, at 7 PM. Entrance is free of charge.

The ReactiveThe Alphabet of BirdsAlfabet van die voëls

The evening will offer insights in two different literary landscapes and two different approaches how to respond to the real, existing world as a writer and intellectual.

Both writers portray a seemingly ordinary life, with protagonists who are sometimes marginalised, and sometimes alienated from society or from themselves. Both writers’ literary figures struggle with life and the societies they are living in and give us clues about how we respond to our changing worlds, the political and economic structures of our globalised time. We share the protagonists’ search for their little share of happiness or their place to call home – literally and metaphorically.
