Willem Samuel, the creator of the autobiographical graphic novel series Menglemoes, which is published in the UK by Soaring Penguin Press, will be in Cape Town to launch the series (and specifically Mengelmoes 6).

The first volume of Mengelmoes was published in 2014 and featured a day in the life of Willem Samuel as a school boy growing up in the 1990s. The subsequent volumes have dipped in at various stages of his life during school and university and explores how he grapples with religion, artistic endeavours, purpose, and temptation. Combined they become a fascinating study of the existential crisis life throws at people.

Although the sixth volume is the last in the series Mengelmoes has never had a launch in South Africa so this will be a rare opportunity to hear Willem Samuel speak about the project.

Launch: Willem Samuel's Mengelmoes, Cape Town

Willem Samuel will be in discussion with Rebecca Davis and there will be live music by Fred den Hartog and Inge Beckmann. All six volumes and original artworks by Willem Samuel will be on sale.
