Rest in Peace: Nadia Goetham

09 Jun 2021

It was with great sadness that the board of PEN South Africa learned of the passing of beloved South African book publisher, Nadia Goetham.

Nadia’s passion for local literature, her championing of debut authors and her resolute  commitment to diversifying publishing, will be remembered and cherished always.

We send our deepest condolences to her family and loved ones during this time of immeasurable grief and loss, and we hold in our thoughts the South African literary community- her colleagues at Jacana, the authors she published, and all the readers her work touched.

Signed,

The Board of PEN SOUTH AFRICA
