The Miriam Tlali Reading and Book Club will discuss the trail of the mysterious suicide of a 27-year-old prodigal pianist, Moses Taiwa Molelekwa, a book, "To the peace on Earth", by arts journalist and musician Mr Struan Douglas.
The passing of Molelekwa shocked South Africans, particularly because this great jazz musician was only just beginning his journey in music. His passing has created a deep sense of mystery as to how a soul so calm could be tormented to a point of ending its life, and apparently that of a loved one, so tragically. The book portrays a fascinating, yet mysterious, plunge into the spirituality surrounding the music industry in South Africa, and why all is not always rosy in the perceived healing abilities of this form of art. The reading and discussion will be facilitated by author and translator Tsietse Winston D Mohapi.
The book will be available for sale in hardcover (R350) and softcover (R200). Books sold at the venue - cash and e-wallet only.
