Please join us on Saturday 21st of January at Bokmakiri Books at 16h00 for a discussion between Marné Pienaar, professor of linguistics and professor Professor Karen de Wet, lecturer in the Afrikaans Department, both from the University of Johannesburg in a tribute to Petra Müller, this very talented poet and author, a daughter of Swellendam.

Petra Müller was born in 1935 in the small enclave of Botrivier, where her father was the village policeman. One of five children, the family moved to Swellendam when she was ten years old. Her father eventually turned to farming, on the farm Eenzaamheid.

She was a hugely prolific and fully bilingual writer of short stories, novels, children's books and poetry and in 2005, Müller was awarded the Herzog Prize by the South African Academy for Science and Art, the highest honour for Afrikaans poetry in the country. Although the bulk of her output has been written in Afrikaans, with four grandchildren living in North America who don’t speak Afrikaans, she decided to write a collection of poems for them.“I set out with a good heart to write a book for them in English,” she explains. The result was Night Crossing (2006).

Petra was honoured with the following awards in her lifetime:
1974: Sanlam Prize for Afrikaans Drama
1980: Eugène Marais Prize
2005: Herzog Prize for Afrikaans Poetry
