The shortlist for the 2018 City Press Tafelberg Nonfiction Award has been announced!
Congratulations are in order for the five authors who made the cut amid the 120+ submissions received by Tafelberg and City Press: Lesedi Molefi, Harry Kalmer, Tyrone August, Nandipha Gantsho and Sara Black have topped the list of this prestigious prize, awarded every two years.
The winning entry will receive a contract with Tafelberg Publishers and an additional R120 000 to fund their project.
On account of the award’s emphasis on non-fiction works which are relevant to South Africa’s sociopolitical framework it comes as no surprise that two of the shortlisted monographs are biographies of anti-apartheid activists, two are about race and education in South Africa, and one on destigmatising mental illness.
