New books launched recently

Local writers have certainly been busy, as reflected in the launch of three new books recently — and a fourth one that will soon arrive on our shelves.

The South African Jewish Museum has been the host for these launches, and the Jacob Gitlin Library has joined forces for two of them.

All the books are available for purchase at the SA Jewish Museum gift shop, or can be loaned from the Gitlin Library.
