Saturday Short

Today's short is the book trailer for Dare Not Linger: The Presidential Years (Farrar Strauss & Giroux, October 24, 2017), the story of Nelson Mandela's years as president of South Africa. The book draws on Mandela's memoir, the unfinished draft of which was completed by South African writer Mandla Langa at the request of the Nelson Mandela Foundation. Graca Machel, Mandela's widow, contributes the prologue to Dare Not Linger.

Read an excerpt from Dare Not Linger.
