The book launch for Men or Monster by Carla van der Spuy was held in the Losperfontein Correctional Facility just outside Brits in the North West. Her book is about the person behind the criminal.
Guests attending the book launch were treated to a prison breakfast of Matabela porrige, oats, a jam sandwich and a cup of cofffee. We were also taken on a tour of the prison.
The facility focusses on rehabilitation and there is several opportunities for inmates to take part in different programmes. They encourage further studies for the inmates. There is a library (people attending the lauch donated a lot of books for the library), a working farm and several workshops.
The prison choir as well as the prison band provided entertainment for the morning.
