Session 4: Burger's Daughter by Nadine Gordimer

Kimberly fell in love with the prose of Nobel-Prize-winning Nadine Gordimer long before politics seemed as important as it does today. After revisiting Burger's Daughter upon Gordimer's death in 2014, Kimberly realized that the book was not only gorgeous and completely engrossing, but important. This anti-apartheid novel is part historical fiction (looking, in part, at Mandela and the Soweto uprisings), part father-daughter relationship exploration, and part love story. It is, in short, a novel you should do yourself the favor of reading. 

Best-selling author, Ph.D. and former adjunct professor at Berkeley, Kimberly is eager to explore the four titles selected for the spring 2018 seminars.

Books are included in the price of the seminars and should be picked up at Kepler's (and read) prior to the meeting date.
