Many Old Rhodians have written books recently prompting us to start an “Alumni Bookcase” to be displayed at Alumni House. We hope that this will serve as advertising for the authors. It you have written a book recently on any subject we would be very grateful if you could donate a copy to our “Bookcase”. The latest books are profiled on the web page at: http://www.ru.ac.za/alumni/news/hotgossip/publishedbooks
