Exploring identity

Author Nadia Kamies in conversation with film reviewer Theresa Smith.

Oranjezicht author Nadia Kamies launched her book, Off-Centre and Out of Focus: Growing up ‘coloured’ in South Africa, at Cavendish Exclusive Books on Thursday September 14. Her late father’s memories of District Six are at the heart of this book and also the complexities of being labelled “coloured” in South Africa, before, during and post-apartheid.
