The Horns, first volume of the Zambesi TrilogyPresenter: Jill Elford
Date: Wednesday 27th March 2019, 2:00pm-3:30pm
Venue: 232 Adelaide St Room 16
Jill Elford will be talking about The Horns, the first volume of her Zambesi Trilogy. Jill uses her research tracing the history of the Matabele kings through Cecil Rhodes to Ian Smith’s Unilateral Declaration of Independence in 1965 as the foundation to this work of historical fiction which describes the early lives of four playmates – the author and her three best African friends.
Jill is a captivating public speaker with intelligent and well-informed knowledge of modern Zimbabwe. Some of you may recall her talk a few years ago on Beloved African, her biography of John Hammond, who developed a program of education to provide schooling for both blacks and whites and eventually produced many of Zimbabwe’s founding black nationalists.
