A morning with Helena Kriel

Helena Kriel

Book lovers grab your book club buddies and join us at iNsingizi at 10am on Saturday 9 May as we host award-winning author and renowned screenplay writer, Helena Kriel.

Helena will be talking to us about her new book, The Year of Facing Fire ~ a brilliant memoir which follows her journey as a writer (for the hit movie, Kama Sutra) and her family’s struggle when her beloved Brother, Evan, is diagnosed with HIV/Aids.

Nominated for playwright of the year, Helena has written extensively for television and even won the Steven Spielberg award which set her up to be an A-list writer in Hollywood.

Although Helena regards South Africa as her home, she spends her time between Los Angeles and SA, as she teaches screenwriting at Spalding University’s MFA in the Writing Program and takes writers and seekers on creative journeys into India.

Helena is also deeply committed to animals and is the founder and president of Baby Rhino Rescue, an international non-profit organisation dedicated to saving rhinos from extinction.

So, join us to experience a morning of insight by Helena as she tells us about her journey as an award-winning screenwriter, lecturer, author and her inspiring work as a champion for rhino conservation, followed by a delectable harvest table lunch and all the relaxation that iNsingizi Lodge & Spa has to offer.

You could even stand a chance to win a signed copy of The Year of Facing Fire; so book your spot now for the opportunity meet and mingle with like-minded book lovers and be inspired.
