Location: Library Room LI135

‌English professor Dr. Gugu Hlongwane will be here to help launch her new short story collection, Electric Fences and Other Stories.


The collection has been described as, “Understated yet graphic and moving stories set in the South African townships of Durban, during and post apartheid. The female protagonists contend with forms of racism, male violence, and sheer poverty as they go about their lives and find dignity as mothers, daughters, students, and lovers”.
 
Copies of the book will be available for signing.
