From Skoobs, Theatre of Books:
Zelda la Grange was Nelson Mandela’s secretary, butler, aide-de-camp, spokesperson, travelling companion, confidante and, as she put it (and he agreed), honorary granddaughter, growing ever closer to him from the day she began work as an anonymous typist in the presidential office in 1994.
Good Morning, Mr Mandela, the extraordinary story of how a young woman had her life and everything she once believed in transformed by the greatest man of her time.
Zelda la Grange grew up in South Africa as a white Afrikaner who supported the rules of segregation. Yet a few years after the end of Apartheid she would become the trusted assistant to Nelson Mandela. Now she shares his lasting and inspiring gifts with the world.
Helen Conford, Publishing Director, said, “This is a book that will touch your life and make you believe that every one of us, no matter who we are or what we have done, has the power to change. It has brought tears to the eyes of everyone who has read it. It shines with honesty and love. The lessons Nelson Mandela gave her as he renewed his country offer hope to everyone.”
Book available from 19th July 2014
