This Thursday 15th December from 7 – 10pm, our very own Noordhoek Eco-warrior Mary Murphy will be one of 15 top local authors at Cafe Nood in Claremont.
Mary will be promoting her book: The Beginner’s Guide to Earthworm Farming – simple ideas for a sustainable world… in which she uses Noordhoek Farm Village as a case Study!! Darwin described earthworms as the most important species on our planet.. and the Beginner’s Guide to Earthworm Farming provides you with all the information you need on these remarkable creatures and how important they are to the functioning of all life on Earth! In addition, this book contains simple, easy-to-implement tips on many important environmental issues currently facing us.
The evening is a great opportunity to meet some of Cape Town’s talented local authors and do your Christmas shopping at the same time. The authors will be raising funds for the Cape Times’s “library in every school” project by signing their books at Café Nood in Claremont. All their books will be on sale and they’ll be tagging on R10 for the Cape Times’s “library in every school” project which has raised over R70 000 for school libraries.
Dial-a-Surprize will be gift-wrapping all books bought at the event. You can meet authors Peter Church, Joanne Hichens, Mary Murphy, Alistair Morgan. Evan Faull, Reuben Riffel, Terry Westby-Nunn, Lauren Beukes, Mike Nicol, Callie Maritz and Mari-Louise Guy, Peter Merrington, James Clelland, Gary Lemke and the Queen of Tarts Tina Bester.
Cosmas Mabeya, the coordinator of The Bookery, the home of Equal Education’s book drive, will be on hand to tell you about the project and if you have any books you’d like to donate to the project, which are in good condition and suitable for 7 to 18 year-olds, feel free to drop them off at Café Nood on the day.
