Zakes Mda: Memoirs of an Outsider
After eight novels, Zakes Mda, the most acclaimed South African writer of the independence era, finally tells his own story. Known for tales that venture beyond the conventional narratives of a people's struggle against apartheid, Mda, author of the memoir Sometimes There is a Void, examines a life that intersects with the political life of his country but that at its heart is the classic adventure story of an artist, lover, father, teacher, and bon vivant. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
