Our fabulous MC was writer and friend, Sylvia Schlettwein.
We started with music from Katini, a singer, rapper and poet from Botswana.
Then we had poetry from Windhoek-based poet Prince Kamaazengi Marenga.
Professor Peter Katjavivi could not attend the launch as he had to be out of the country on official business so he asked his friend writer, librarian, freedom fighter and a current vice chancellor at the University of Namibia, Ellen Namhila, to stand in for him. She read a prepared speech from Prof. Katjavivi as well as gave her own remarks on the book.
I then explained a bit about about the book and read a passage.
Then Motswana writer and friend, Wame Molefhe, interviewed me about the book.
Afterwards books were sold by the Book Den and I signed books for those who wanted. We had an amazing time in Windhoek. Thank you to everyone who helped us make the launch a success!
