Children hold a special place in Mandela’s heart. The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund stands as testimony to how Madiba thinks children should be treated – with respect. As if to return the favour, these special people have collated their thoughts about the former President into a book – The Children’s Mandela, which is a compilation of 40 thousand answers to 25 questions posed to South African children about Madiba.
A lot has been written about South Africa’s first democratically elected President, more so since his release from 27 years in prison. Conversations with Myself brings us Mandela in his own words and voice; he speaks – and writes – for himself.
“Conversations with Myself”, the new book by Nelson Mandela goes on sale, Tuesday, October 12, 2010, and will be available at leading bookstores and on Amazon.com.
