Book Launch (Cape Town): Odyssey to Freedom by George Bizos

Odyssey to FreedomRandom House takes great pleasure in inviting you to the Cape Town launch of George Bizos’ monumental autobiography, Odyssey to Freedom.

The event takes place on the eve of the Cape Town Book Fair, and, if the success of the book’s Johannesburg launch is anything to go by, will see hundreds turn out to get the legendary human rights lawyer’s “John Hancock”.

This is, quite simply, a publishing occasion not to be missed. Please note the launch details and RSVP information below – see you there!

Born in Greece in 1928, George Bizos fled his native Greece after the German invasion of 1941. Arriving with his father in Johannesburg, the 13 year-old understood no English.
