Miriam Tlali Reading and Book Club joins the world in celebrating Africa Month, 26th May 2019, at 13H00 to 15H00, 74 Mimosa Road, Randpark Ridge, Johannesburg

The month of May is recognised as Africa month – a time when the continent of Africa commemorates the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). Celebrated on the 25th May, Africa Day signals the anniversary of the formation of (OAU) in 1963, giving the people of Africa an opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices of many and raise a glass to freedom and liberation from colonial imperialists and apartheid.

As part of celebrations the Miriam Tlali Reading and Book  Club will bring together book lovers in the reading and discussion of Sankomota: An Ode in One Album book by Phehello J Mofokeng, on the 26th of May 2019.


The Club’s primary goal has always been to cultivate the reading and writing culture in the country.
