Launch event for A Nun and the Pig, by Treive Nicholas, 7:00pm online & in person on Thursday 15th July 2021

P&G Wells is excited to present this exclusive opportunity to hear local author Treive Nicholas talk about and read from his new book, A Nun and the Pig: Tales from South Africa in this ‘in conversation event.

In 1980, while Nelson Mandela languished in jail, an enthusiastic and hopelessly naive British teenager arrived at a local school in Mandela’s home state of Transkei. Wide-eyed and faced with an unfamiliar world, Treive Nicholas was about to embark on an adventure he would never forget. Looking back on this year forty years later, A Nun and the Pig offers a remarkable insight into this politically charged but little-known part of Africa and a lived experience ranging from the surreal to the heart-warming; the wonderful to the tragic. We look forward to talking to Treive about his adventures.
