If you relish reading and would like to get more out of Afrikaans novels and volumes of poetry, you've just missed an opportunity to learn how to delve deeper into literature and read with greater insight.

The Department of Afrikaans and Dutch offered its first short course for book clubs from 10 to 12 November. In these three busy but very interesting days, Prof. Louise Viljoen and the short-course attendees discussed six contenders and prize winners: Dol heuning (SJ Naudé), Skepsel (Willem Anker), Voorouer. Pelgrim. Berg. (Ingrid Winterbach), Uittogboek (Johan Myburg), Asof geen berge ooit hier gewoon het nie (Pieter Odendaal) and Bientang (Jolyn Phillips).

If you would like to enrol for this short course and find out why the participants enjoyed it so much this year, you can contact Maret Blom at or 021 808 2160.
