Vangi Gantsho Undressing in front of the window: Launching a Collection of Poetry

Pretoria: South African poet, writer and cultural activist, Vangi Gantsho, will be launching her debut poetry collection: Undressing in front of the Window with Protea Bookshop.

Saturday, 06 June 2015
Protea Book Store: 1067 Burnett Street, Hatfield. Pretoria
13:30 for 14:00

RSVP: lbell@proteaboekwinkel.com or 012 362 3444 before/on 04 June 2015

The collection is foreworded by the renowned freedom fighter and poet Dr Don Mattera who sums this important piece of literature up by saying: “Vangile’s quest – like so many critical and conscious young scribes, appears to want to jerk us into awareness of the hurt they are experiencing; the multitudinous social, political, economic and religious challenges they have to countenance: drugs, alcohol and disease. The poems reflect these concerns.”

Gantsho, who has just returned from a month long poetry and cultural exchange in Washington DC and New York, will be sharing poems from Undressing in front of the window, alongside poets:Mthunzikazi Mbungwana, Sarah Caterpillarwings Godsell, Sabelo Soko and Makhafula Vilakazi. Also on the bill are musicians friends Noxolo Hlatshwayo, Gloria Bosman and Sibusile Xaba.

The afternoon is set to be a beautiful celebration of literature and music.

Vangi is a girl who couldn’t sleep
Then one day was told she was deep
The family thought she was crazy
Coz her visions for Africa were spacey
But now her scribbling, they all want to keep

“I say to you that when you work you fulfill a part of earth’s furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born,
And in keeping yourself with labour you are in truth loving life,
And to love life through labour is to be intimate with life’s inmost secret.”
– Khalil Gibran:  The Prophet
