Kalk Bay Books and Quivertree invite you to a launch for
Cook. Better.
by Nikki Werner and Brandon de Kock
This is not a cookbook. It is a book about cooking. Think of it as cooking between the lines… or, stuff your mother should have told you.
Here are the hows and whys behind everyday ingredients and techniques – when to use coarse or finely ground salt, best pairings for common garden herbs, extracting and building flavour, champion chopping techniques, foolproof fillet, spud’s lore and much much more.
This user-friendly book is for everyone who’s anywhere along the cookery continuum. It is the ‘ta-da’ moment for those who have been cooking, duty bound, for years, but didn’t show up for basics training.
Nikki and Brandon will be chatting to Kate Wilson.
WHEN: Thursday 23 April at 6 for 6.30
WHERE: Kalk Bay Books, 124 Main Road, Kalk Bay
RSVP ESSENTIAL: Email events@kalkbaybooks.co.za or call us on 021 788 2266

Richard Rive: A Partial Biography
By Shaun Viljoen
Richard Moore Rive was a writer, scholar, literary critic and college teacher in Cape Town, South Africa. He is best known for his short stories written in the late 1950s and for his second novel, ‘Buckingham Palace’, District Six, in which he depicted the well-known cosmopolitan area of District Six, where he grew up.
In this biography Shaun Viljoen, a former colleague of Rive’s, creates the composite qualities of a man who was committed to the struggle against racial oppression and to the ideals of non-racialism but was also variously described as irascible, pompous and arrogant, with a ‘cultivated urbanity’. Beneath these public personae lurked a constant and troubled awareness of his skin colour and guardedness about his homosexuality.
Using his own and others’ memories, and drawing on Rive’s fiction, Viljoen brings the author to life with sensitivity and empathy. The biography follows Rive from his early years in the 1950s, writing for Drum magazine and spending time in the company of great anti-establishment writers such as Jack Cope, Ingrid Jonker, Jan Rabie, Marjorie Wallace, Es’kia Mphahlele and Nadine Gordimer, to his acceptance at Magdalene College, Oxford, where he completed his doctorate on Olive Schreiner, before returning to South Africa to resume his position as senior lecturer at Hewat College of Education.
Shaun Viljoen will be in conversation with Imraan Coovadia
WHEN: Thursday 26th February at 6 for 6.30pm
WHERE: 124 Main Road, Kalk Bay

   The Search for the Rarest Bird in the World
      by Vernon R.L. Head
Vernon will be in conversation with John Maytham
In 1990 an expedition of Cambridge scientists arrived at the Plains of Nechisar, tucked between the hills of the Great Rift Valley in the Gamo Gofa province in the country of Ethiopia. On that expedition, 315 species of birds were seen; 61 species of mammal and 69 species of butterfly were identified; 20 species of dragonflies and damselflies; 17 reptile species were recorded; three frog species were filed; plants were listed. And the wing of a road-killed bird was packed into a brown paper bag.
It was to become the most famous wing in the world.
Vernon R.L. Head was born in Cape Town. He studied architecture, winning national and international awards, and is presently Chairman of BirdLife South Africa. When not working on environmental matters, he is either designing special buildings, or traveling the world looking for the rarest birds. This is his first book.

The Unsaid
by Richard De Nooy 

Newshound J.R. Deo has spent his life pursuing tragedy to the darkest corners of the globe, reporting on places like the Killing fields and the Middle East. He has not emerged unscathed from this quest: he has a history of violent outbursts, and following a savage attack on fellow journalists in a bar, Deo’s mental state and criminal accountability for the attack are assessed at the Institute for forensic observation in the Netherlands. Here, he goes from observer to observed. The calm in his cell is initially ideal for taking stock of horrors past and present.

But gradually, sinister figures take control of his pen and begin dictating their confessions through his writing. Meanwhile, his fellow inmates at the Institute also become increasingly restless. The violent, paranoid men he is among begin to wonder what exactly Deo is reporting on, and more importantly, to whom.

When: Monday 12th May
Where: 124 Main Road, Kalk Bay

How to Fix South Africa’s Schools
By Prof Jonathan Jansen and Molly Blank
South Africa has an education crisis, despite the fact that the government spends the biggest slice of its budget on education, more than any other African country. And yet the crisis persists.
Jansen and Blank looked at South African schools that work, in spite of adverse conditions – schools in poor communities, schools with overcrowded classrooms, schools in both rural and urban environments – and have drawn out the practical strategies that make them successful. There are no complicated theories, no difficult to implement solutions – just lots of common sense.
Molly Blank is a documentary filmmaker who began working in South Africa as a Fulbright Scholar in 2005. Previously she was a teacher in Washington, DC. She holds an MA in Journalism from the University of California, Berkeley and a BA in History from Tufts University.
Professor Jonathan Jansen is the rector of the University of the Free State, where he has earned a formidable reputation for transformation and for a deep commitment to reconciliation. A former Dean of Education at the University of Pretoria, Prof Jansen holds an impressive collection of degrees and awards, including the position as President of the South African Institute of Race Relations.
Molly Blank and Prof Jansen will be in conversation with Cameron Dugmore.
Date: Friday 25th April
Time: 6.00 for 6.30pm
Place: Kalk Bay Books, 124 Main Road, Kalk Bay
