BK Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of the book Archive of Kindness by Dr Jess Auerbach during the height of the Covid-19 lockdown. A portion of proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to charity. Recognising that this collection now provides an important added perspective to the significant hardship and suffering of the past twelve-month period, a selection of stories from the Archive of Kindness have now been chosen by ten prominent South Africans. The book is produced to the highest standard, becoming an important record of the pandemic and enabling further national reflection on the most positive aspects of South African society. Jess Auerbach teaches at North-West University. She’s from Durban, spent ten years in Angola, Brazil, Mauritius, the UK and USA, and then came home to South Africa just before the pandemic. Jethro Longwe is a rising artist and graphic designer, and a recent graduate of the Ruth Prowse School of Fine Art in Cape Town.
