UN Head Librarian Gets Nod from NY Post

Cindy Adams mentions the UN Head Librarian in the context of a gossip item:

TODAY's United Nations Day. The UN's head librarian, Sindiwe Magona, who fled a Cape Town ghetto, writes best sellers like "Mother to Mother."

This fictionalized version of the death of young Fulbright scholar Amy Biel, who'd gone to South Africa in 1993 to help in their first open elections after the end of apartheid, has been optioned by Reese Witherspoon, who has her own production company, Type A Films.

Says Magona about her adopted city: "I love New York City's subways. I ride them every day from the UN to my home in The Bronx. I love New York."
