My Mother’s Mother’s Mother at Woordfees festival

05 March 2020

The Toyota SU Woordfees 2020 festival will be held from 6 to 15 March 2020 in and around Stellenbosch. This year is the arts festival’s 21st celebration.

On 12 March our authors Annemarié van Niekerk and Pieta van Beek will talk at the festival about their book My Mother’s Mother’s Mother. Anastasia de Vries talks with Annemarié and Pieta, after which a great line-up of eight authors will read extracts from their works published in the book.

Woordfees is very enthusiastic about the book:

“My Mother’s Mother’s Mother is the most extensive book yet about Afrikaans women’s literature. It stretches from 17th century Dutch texts written on South African soil to current day Afrikaans literature. This splendid work of almost 1000 pages, was launched in Amsterdam to great enthusiasm, and is now taking its South African bow.”
