SAIR 2016 – Raised 1000 books

Hello my Freaky Darlings,

As some of you may know (or not) I don’t often go out, but when I do I do a proper job. I’m a big believer in the whole go big or stay home thing, and this time I even made the local papers. Luckily not for doing anything like getting drunk and disorderly.

Now please note, I did absolutely nothing to get into a newspaper. All I did was go to a charity event to raise books for under privileged kids, donated a book (okay it was a really nice hard-cover copy of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett), and smiled for a camera. That’s it!

The lady behind the event is Carlyle Labuschagne who founded South African Indie Revolution (aka SAIR).

For a full account on the event read the article in the Roodeport Record.

Here’s the photo that made it into the papers:

Not a bad pic of Sonia Killik (author of Birth – Fuck Yeah), Carlyle, and myself.

I will admit that there were moments while I was getting ready to go to the event, that I was thinking I would rather stay at home in my pj’s, but it’s probably a good thing I didn’t. Perhaps I should venture out a tad more often.
