Damon Galgut is an internationally recognised multi award winning writer. Shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 2003 and 2010, he won the prize in 2021 with The Promise.

The novel charts the crash and burn of a white South African family, living on a farm outside Pretoria. The Swarts are gathering for Ma’s funeral. The younger generation, Anton and Amor, detest everything the family stand for, not least the failed promise of land and a house to the Black woman who has worked for them her whole life…yet somehow, as each decade passes, that promise remains unfulfilled.

This will be a live streamed event in the Pavilion Art Centre.
