Launch Event for A Nun & the Pig by Trieve Nicholas, 7.00pm online on Thursday 15 July 2021

Exclusively from P&G Wells, join Trieve Nicholas, Hampshire author, as he introduces his book, A Nun and the Pig, published on 15 July.

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. This 'in-conversation event' will include a chance for audience members to ask questions and learn more about Trieve's amazing adventures as a young man in Africa at the height of the apartheid  period.

A Nun and the Pig offers an 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. The friendship of a wise and feisty nun kept Treive Nicholas on course, opening his eyes to a side of life unfamiliar to a former milkman from suburban England. Her car, 'the Pig', was a trusty but temperamental companion.
