reviewed by Anne van Oorschot

We had a lovely and lively book discussion about Born a Crime written by South African comedian, Trevor Noah! Not only did we have a fun get together at one of our member’s new home but we also enjoyed delicious vlaaien, not to be confused with vla 😉

Not everyone was drawn into the book, but it was enjoyed by most of us. The humor used by Noah made the serious subject matter easier to handle. We talked about some of the  huge challenges a “colored kid” faced growing up in apartheid South Africa and  about the racism still present in many of our home countries and the Netherlands. Food for thought…
