Fifteen Men to be launched in Parliament tomorrow

Fifteen Men & Margie Orford

Fifteen MenI’ve just heard the news that Fifteen Men will feature as part of Minister of Prisons Nconde Balfour’s budget speech in Parliament tomorrow.

One of the book’s contributors, Michael Dakets, will be transported from the Groot Drakenstein Prison to Parliament to read from the book. I’m trying to wangle an official invite to the speech, so I can present the minister with a copy of the book.

Media will apparently be out in force – watch for coverage!

    That's excellent, Margie. The project really deserves that level of attention.
