Johann Wolfgang (von) Goethe (1749 – 1832) has left a lasting legacy. He was a German scientist, philosopher, writer, poet, statesman and I probably have left out a few things. Part of his legacy (without him knowing it) is the Goethe Institut with branches at many capitals around the world.
The South African Goethe Institut will have a nice litearary meeting on Thursday. Two writers have been invited. Helon Habila from Nigeria/United States of America and Nthikeng Mohlele from South Africa. They will meet at literary crossroads, so from whatever direction you come, you are welcome.
