The Book Revue will be chatting to Ruda Landman at Piece, a lovely space in the Ellis Park Precinct.

Ruda’s book Tell me your story is a series of interviews with people with stories we need to hear.

“How can we know each other, or understand the whole of our reality, if we don’t hear each other’s stories?”

Journalist Ruda Landman, widely known for her compelling interviews, talks to prominent South Africans about their life choices and about how change has affected them. A colourful mosaic of experience emerges as people share stories – from changing careers, to coming out, losing a partner or following a calling.

The book includes insights by the likes of John Kani, Ferial Haffajee, Pieter-Dirk Uys, Katlego Maboe, Gugu Zulu, Zapiro, Mam’ Khanyi (who takes in orphans and street children), Arno Carstens, ProVerb, Nick Binedell and Marc Lottering.

All royalties from the sale of this book will got to StudyTrust, an organisation which supports university students.
