Public reading and discussion: Grizelda Grootboom on her book “Exit”

Last week Grizelda Grootboom, 35, launched her book, “Exit”, documenting her ordeal as a victim of human trafficking and drug addiction.

Grizelda grew up with her father and his grandparents in Woodstock but ended up bouncing from one shelter to the next.

She ended up living on the streets and at the age of 18, she met a girl known as Ntombi who convinced her to move to Johannesburg.

Grizelda, who will read extracts from her book, will be interviewed byTarryn-Lee Bell, a Cornerstone Institute student.

Bring your copy of the book as there will be an opportunity to have it signed by Grizelda.
