Barack Obama’s Sister, Auma, to Discuss Her Autobiography And Then Life Happens

And Then Life Happens: A MemoirAuma Obama, sister of US President Barack Obama, will be discussing her book And Then Life Happens in Joburg at the Goethe Institut on the 14th of June and she will be in Cape Town, at IDASA, on the 15th of June.

Auma was born in Kenya, and left the country at the age of 19 to study in Germany. During her 16 years there, she was confronted with the contradictions between European and African culture. Afraid of not really belonging to either, she was frustrated and had the feeling of being torn apart. Her personal story gives an insight into life between different cultures. Join the author for a discussion of her life and lessons, as she launches her autobiography on Thursday 14 June at the Goethe Institute in Joburg and on Friday 15 June at the IDASA building in Cape Town.

See you there!
