Tomorrow night (May 16) the Mondays @ Six at St Clements programme will host Poems From Samarang when Donald Clark and Pieter Scholtz will read a selection of poems from Clark’s book.

Donald Clark was born in Johannesburg and educated at Pridwin Preparatory School and Michaelhouse. He qualified in medicine in 1953 and furthered his medical studies in England and Boston in the United States, obtaining a diploma in Child Health. He worked as a general medical practitioner in Bryanston, Johannesburg, and then in Durban.

He settled in Eshowe in Zululand in 1965, where he continues to live and work today. He has been a keen ornithologist since his youth and is an enthusiastic gardener. In 1950 he ran the 440 yards in Springbok Colours against a visiting American athletic team.
