Yvonne de Wit, an artistic jewellery designer and the delightful wife of Herman, our blog manager, visited our Hemingways of Hermanus Bookshop yesterday.

Huxley, the eminent author of A Brave New World having been temporarily blinded by illness in his youth, in 1939 encountered and became a strong advocate in supporting the Bates Method for better eyesight.

It was published in the United States in 1942.
