Zelda La Grange, Assistant to Nelson Mandela, to Pen Memoir

zeldaViking, an imprint at Penguin Random House, will publish a memoir written by Zelda la Grange; for many years, she served as an assistant to world leader Nelson Mandela.

Here’s more from the press release: “Zelda la Grange grew up in South Africa as a white Afrikaner who supported the rules of segregation. Yet, a few years after the end of apartheid, she became the trusted assistant to Nelson Mandela. Now, she shares his lasting and inspiring gifts with the world.” (Photo Credit: Anton la Grange)
