Social – Drug Muled: Sixteen Years in a Thai Prison launch

2013-05-03 14:37

Exclusive Books in Hyde Park Corner Shopping Centre was a hive of activity this week when book lovers braved a nippy Joburg evening to attend the launch of a book penned by Joanne Joseph.

Drug Muled: 16 Years in a Thai Prison, about beauty queen turned drug mule Vanessa Goosen, has caused a buzz in publishing circles. And if the turnout at this launch is anything to go by, it will be on the bestseller list soon.

eNCA Africa editor Chris Maroleng led the conversation with Joseph and Goosen, whose daughter Felicia was also there. Felicia, now 17, was born in prison after her mother was convicted of drug smuggling.

Goosen was released in 2010 after serving 16 years in prison.
