The Open Book Festival is in Cape Town

18 September 2014

The annual Open Book Festival will run from 17 - 21 September 2014 at various locations around Cape Town. Book clubs, author readings and workshops will take place at various venues around Cape Town including the Fugard Theatre and the Book Lounge.

There is something for every type of book enthusiast. Visitors of the fair can look forward to a variety of events during the five day programme, such as discussions with authors, poetry slams and even a fun “introduction to cartoon drawing” workshop.

The fair will feature  international authors, as well as more than 100 local authors. Many events have free entry, and ticket prices for paid for events range between R40 and R200.

The Western Cape Government has given financial support to this initiative and we encourage all staff members to visit the Festival over this coming weekend.
