The 12th of October 2018 marked a momentous occasion in the history of Club Readership’s existence as an institution. One of the very first book published by Club Readership (CR) and authored by Mafule Morelearn Moswane, titled “A learner’s Guide to Academic Success” was procured by Gauteng Department of Education (GDE)-Young Writers Project. The GDE procured 89 of the “Learner’s Guide to Academic Success” title. The book was published in 2016 during the first year of CR operation, however, remains relevant now more than ever before as its message is about inspiring young people to access post-schooling opportunities. The book is a blueprint for academic success as it shares tried and tested methods, tactics and strategies which have been employed by many as well as the author who recently completed his Master of Science (2018) from University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
The book also shares advices about choosing careers, the significance of Grade 11 results and the importance of education among other things. In addition, the book captures narratives of exceptional young people who have excelled academically and have accessed post-schooling opportunities and funding opportunities as case studies and examples. The book alongside other Club Readership titles is sold at African Flavour Book Store at Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
The book, “A learner’s Guide to Academic Success” prior to being procured by GDE was also sold in bulk previously to the following institutions: Association for Black Securities and Investments- ABSIP WITS Chapter; Charlotte Mannya Maxeke Institute; as well as two primary schools in Alexandra Township; Skeen Primary school and Iphuteng Primary school respectively, and also Lenz Public School in Lenasia. Beyond the institutions which procured the book, it was, and still is well received by readers from different backgrounds who find it both inspirational and useful, in particular learners who are about to complete their high school careers seeking for ways to access post-schooling opportunities. Mafule was also featured in various national television programmes such as YoTv and Morning Live and a number of radio stations to have a conversation about his books.
