5 Book & Map Dealers are getting together on Saturday the 13th of May for an open day. For sale will be first editions; vintage posters; books on travel and exploration and antique maps. At 11h00 there will be a talk by Angus Douglas on Jan Smuts and the definition of manhood. In this 40-minute monologue writer and performer Douglas explores a hidden side to the life of the warrior-statesman-philosopher Jan Smuts. Angus’s style is based on that of famous American monologist Mike Daisey, blending historical anecdotes with personal musings and philosophical excursions. Angus explores a secret side to Smuts - prophet of the New Age Movement – and investigates the significance of Smuts in the post-modern milieu. Cost: R80 suggested donation. Profits go to Smuts House Museum in Irene.
