One fat book with over 100 wonderful short stories written in South Africa since early in the 20th century by Blacks and whites, men and women, Afrikaners and Jews, Zulu, Zhosa, Coloreds, and many more. One short book in history so everyone knows the historical lay of the land. Several films in class. Some exploration of South African newspapers, old and contemporary. Some workshopping of the writing in class among peers. This is the recipe for a marvelous introduction to South African creativity, struggles, and histories. Please join this chance to learn about one of Africa's most complex lands with a fascinating history, and through STORIES, through some of its best creative writing. What is the relationship between fact and fiction, history and stories? We will ask these questions, too.
