South Africa Movie/Book Group—Mary Ellen Ashcroft

South Africa Movie/Book Group—Mary Ellen Ashcroft

During the deep winter, come and read books and watch movies from South Africa. Over the years I’ve taught a course called The Literature of Southern Africa at several colleges, so I’d like to offer a book and movie discussion group, as I prepare for my sabbatical in South Africa Sept.-Dec. 2015. South Africa has produced a number of outstanding novelists (such as Alan Paton, Andre Brink, Nadine Gordimer, and J.M. Coetzee) as well as playwright Athol Fugard.

We will meet at Cook County Higher Ed eight Thursdays from 6:30-8:30, during January, February and March. (You don’t need to come to all of the sessions.)

As we gather for this group, I will provide background on the historical situation, colonial and post colonial literature, and the writers we will read (and a few we don’t have time for). We will read three (short-ish) novels by great South African writers, and I will hand out poetry by some others as well as short pieces by a few emerging voices. An optional book of nonfiction on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and some short writings by Nelson Mandela will be used for some background. We will watch film versions of two of Athol Fugard’s plays—one set under apartheid and one in post-apartheid South Africa. We will also watch a film of Andre Brink’s novel Dry White Season, another film about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Long Night’s Journey Into Day and
Invictus, about Nelson Mandela and the new South Africa.

January 8-- Background to literature/film of Southern Africa. Watch Athol Fugard’s Master Harold and the Boys

January 15-- Discuss Alan Paton’s novel-- Cry the Beloved Country.

January 29—Watch Andre Brink’s--Dry White Season.
