Event: Johannesburg launch of “Everything is a Deathly Flower” by Maneo Mohale

We hosted the Johannesburg launch of Maneo Mohale’s new collection of poems, Everything is a Deathly Flower on Thursday 17 October. 

Joined by Megan Ross and Letlhogonolo Mokgoroane, Mohale grappled with sexual assault and the process of reconstructing life thereafter through her anthology. Mohale is unapologetic and disarming in her intertwining of a contemporary South African tradition and radically new, queer directions.  

The pictures below give a great sense of the atmosphere at the event.
