Call for Contributions to Melanie Verwoerd and Tafelberg Publishers’ Book on Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela

Do you have a story about Nelson Mandela?

Former ANC MP and Ambassador to Ireland, Melanie Verwoerd, in conjunction with Tafelberg Publishers, is compiling a collection of anecdotes from people who have met Madiba, in order to make a special tribute book to honour the father of our nation. They are looking for stories that illustrate Madiba’s greatness through his individual acts of kindness, humility and love for people, or his sense of humour. Your story may be as short or as long as you wish, provided it is of a personal nature and includes why you think it illustrates Madiba’s greatness.

Some of the contributions will be selected for a book to be published in both South Africa and the rest of the world. It will include contributions by high-profile politicians, celebrities, political activists and friends. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital.

Should you be willing to participate, please e-mail your contribution and any photograph you may have of the meeting to
