Authors hope ‘Skin We Are In’ will change conversation
The book is aimed at children between the ages of eight and 12 and will be printed in all 11 official languages.
CAPE TOWN - Authors of a new children’s book that’s soon to hit the shelves are hoping to get under people’s skin.
The book, titled Skin We Are In, written by acclaimed South African author Sindiwe Magona and American anthropologist Nina Joblonski, will be launched on Wednesday night in Cape Town.
It’s aimed at children between the ages of eight and 12 and will be printed in all 11 official languages.
Joblonski says the book is nearly 10 years in the making.
“The book is about skin colour and why we have it [skin colour]. We hope that this book can help to change the conversation or put some difficult topics squarely in the conversation… get children to think about something that is beautiful, natural and badly misunderstood.”
