“The Children’s Mandela” coffee table book, for both adults and children, was officially launched at an amazing function at Nedbank, on the 9th November 2010. Speeches were made by the publisher, Iain Bryant, of Future by Design, Nedbank CE Mike Brown, and Brett Bowes of Terranova.
More than 100 invited guests were in attendance, and the event was also widely attended by members of the press. A special mention must be made of Mr Charles Priebatsch, of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, who collected a signed copy of the book on behalf of Nelson Mandela, and Mr. Ernie Campbell, of the Oprah Winfrey Academy for Girls, who collected a signed book on behalf of Mrs. Winfrey.
At the function the books were all sold out, with additional orders being placed for delivery next week. Books are expected to be in store by the 18th November 2010 at the latest.
