Event Details

David Krut Bookstore and the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal are pleased to present the book launch of The Art of Life in South Africa, by Yale University historian Daniel Magaziner.

Join us for an extraordinary evening of engaging conversation between author Daniel Magaziner and African philosopher Achille Mbembe.

Magaziner radically reframes apartheid-era South African history. Against the dominant narrative of apartheid oppression and black resistance, this book focuses instead on a small group’s efforts to fashion more fulfilling lives through the ironic medium of an apartheid-era school.
