Briget Hilton-Barber
Bridget Hilton-Barber’s colourful career in the media spans more than two decades. Former travel correspondent for Radio 702 and former editor of South African Airways’ (SAA) magazine Sawubona, Hilton-Barber is best known for her wild and wacky travel writing and books. Her first memoir, Garden of My Ancestors was a bestseller.

Now in her ninth book, a political memoir, Hilton-Barber takes you on a poignant journey back to her life as a student activist in the final days of apartheid in the mid 80s where she was betrayed by a police spy and ended up in jail. Hilton-Barber has recently given up a decade of life on the family farm in rural Limpopo and moved back to Jozi. She is trying to write her next book from Parkhurst, roosting ground to just about all of the city’s hadedas, also known as flying vuvuzelas.
