BOOK LAUNCH MARCH 21 – ‘STILL A PYGMY’ BY ISAAC BACIRONGO

still-a-pygmy

Still a Pygmy is a story of love, pride and prejudice that traces the journey of BaTembo Pygmy Isaac Bacirongo from the forests of Central Africa, through the brutality of dictatorship and war, to arrival and settlement in Australia’s melting pot. Isaac’s inimitable style and voice draw readers into the heart of this memoir, his relationship with his wife, who survived his mother’s attempts to kill her to help Isaac through experiences of appalling violence. It is full of warmth, wit and wise insights about life.

The book launch is Saturday, March 21 at Glebebooks at 3:30 for 4 pm, venue upstairs. RSVP for catering purposes laura@finch.com.au by March 18.
