THE next talk at Friends of Kloof Library will be delivered by Richard Steyn, author of Jan Smuts, Unafraid of Greatness. The subject of the talk will be Jan Smuts.

Steyn was editor of The Natal Witness from 1974 to 1990 and was awarded a Nieman Fellowship for Journalism at Harvard University in 1985.
He was editor-in-chief of The Star newspaper from 1990 to 1995 and was a director of corporate affairs and communications at Standard Bank from 1996 to 2001.

He is currently a writer and book reviewer.
Steyn’s book is a re-examination of the life and thoughts of soldier-statesman Smuts, a man whose contributions and contradictions remain relevant today.

This fascinating and insightful talk will take place on 1 March at Kloof Junior Primary School, Abelia Road, Kloof at 6pm.

Tickets are R50 (or R35 for members of Friends of Kloof Library), available from Kloof Library on 031 764 7543. Membership forms to join Friends will be available at the hall.
