The Wisconsin Book Festival presents this special book event with Maggie Messitt Step across the border of a former, apartheid-era homeland and into a community in the midst of change, caught between a traditional past and a western future, a racially charged history and a pseudo-democratic present. THE RAINY SEASON—a work of narrative nonfiction resulting from ten months of intense immersion and six years of reporting—introduces readers to the remote bushveld community of Rooiboklaagte and opens a window into the beautifully complicated reality of daily life in South Africa.
