Lola’s Book Club: The Prison Letters of Nelson Mandela

In these times, it always helps to turn to the experiences and words of those who have come before us, experienced more than we could imagine and got through it. #Repost @motherlandsmasterpiece ・・・ New book alert! 📖 “The Prison Letters of Nelson Mandela” – 255 (most previously unseen) letters written in the 10,052 days (27 years) during which Nelson Mandela was incarcerated, is being published on July 10th by VW Norton. The letters – written to his family, activists, government officials and prison authorities – are organised chronologically and divided between the 4 prisons (Pretoria Local Prison, Robben Island, Pollsmor Prison and Victor Verster Prison) in which he was kept from 1962 until 11th February 1990. We absolutely can’t wait to get our hands on this one. #nelsonmandela #hero
