South African novelist Gillian Slovo will speak in the Joynes Reading Room at 7PM on Nov. 10th. Her 1997 memoir Every Secret Thing discusses her parents' anti-apartheid activism and her mother's subsequent murder.
Her novel Red Dust was adapted into a film starring Hilary Swank and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The first ten honors students to sign up to at the Joynes Room front desk to attend the Nov. 10th talk will receive a free copy of Slovo's new novel, Black Orchids.
