On the 17th of January 2017, Cape Town celebrated my book, The Mentor Within. Tracey Saunders organised a book launch at Umvoto Africa, an earth sciences consultancy. The Sir Herbert Baker building in Muizenberg was the ideal setting for tango accordion by Stanislav Angelov, and great addresses by my two living mentors, Marjorie Mbokoma and Esther Lategan. My brother, the cartoonist Zapiro (who illustrated my book) also spoke. Surrounded by friends, family, colleagues and people who had heard me speak about The Mentor Within on the radio, the book was launched to a Cape Town audience. My husband, Francis Liu, was the MC – and an avid supporter of the book, Estelle Lawrence, spoke of how she had carried the book up Kilimanjaro, just to have the inspiration with her. A wonderful event, with incredible generosity from all who contributed.
