Echoes of Humanity: Tales of Struggle, Resilience, and Transformation

Zaheera Jina Asvat author of Tears of the Weaver wrote ten superb stories exploring the lives of post-apartheid South Africans, unearthing hidden emotions behind everyday facades. From stolen electricity meters to struggles against gender oppression, Asvat’s tales paint poignant portraits of individuals grappling with life’s challenges. Shifting gears, Costas Ayiotis takes centre stage with My Big Fat Greek Taverna. Follow Ayiotis’ journey from a disillusioned lawyer navigating the dark side of his profession to a determined restaurateur in Hout Bay. This memoir traces his escape from the negativity of international politics to the pursuit of a dream, converting a run-down pub into Lemonia Greek Taverna against the odds. This session resonates with diverse human experiences, from post-apartheid complexities to the pursuit of dreams in the enchanting landscapes of Hout Bay. “Echoes of Humanity” promises to explore the common threads of struggle, resilience, and transformation that bind us all in the intricate tapestry of life. A conversation with Zaheera Jina Asvat and Costas Ayiotis is moderated by Karabo Kgoleng.
