“Bilakhulu!” Book Launch with Vonani Bila

“Bilakhulu!” Book Launch | David Krut Bookstore | 151 Jan Smuts Avenue | 28 July 2015 | 6PM 

Vonani Bila’s voice in Bilakhulu! is as buoyant and direct as ever; his emotional range is broad, incorporating humour and lament. These seven narrative poems, ranging from 3 to 35 pages in length, are grounded in the poet’s family and village, at the same time making visible the wider forces that impinge on rural life.
