Continuing on the theme ‘Histories’ the next Cover to Cover online book show is presented by Eusebius McKaiser on Thursday 8TH April at 18h00 expertly powered by Exclusive Books!
Find sizzling author interviews, book reviews and reading recommendations by two of South Africa’s most seasoned journalists! A new episode of Cover to Cover is broadcast every two weeks on a Thursday at 18h00 on the Exclusive Books You Tube Channel.
The next show, Episode 8, will be presented by Eusebius McKaiser.
The authors are Adekeye Adebajo on his book “The Trial of Cecil John Rhodes” about Rhodes waking up in an African Hereafter 120-years after his death and Shireen Hassim, one of the contributors to the book “Reassessing Mandela” who spoke to Eusebius from Canada about Mandela’s legacy and place in the country’s history.
Eusebius McKaiser adds “Mandela and Rhodes represent diametrically opposed historical figures. One is thoroughly evil and colonial. The other is an exemplar of moral courage. In this episode we explore two very different books that pair nicely in their nuanced exploration of these subjects.”
“Books help us understand not only our present, but our past and future too. The titles in this episode of Cover to Cover do all three.” Batya Bricker, General Manager, Exclusive Books
