Videos: New High Definition Clips from the Not the London Book Fair Event in Cape Town

Building Crowd

It took all night (literally; the first video started uploading at 11 pm, and the last finished at 9:15 am), but somewhat miraculously it didn’t fail (in South Africa, there’s many a slip twixt a file and its upload), and so BOOK SA proudly presents high-definition video clips from the Not the London Book Fair event held at the Book Lounge in Cape Town.

The videos are longer versions of the low-grade clips we published during the event; most pleasing is the fact that we’ve captured the complete readings of Antjie Krog, Kopano Matlwa, Liesl Jobson and Fiona Snyckers. Here they are, along with clips from Victor Dlamini‘s panel with Krog and Imraan Coovadia, and Helen Moffett‘s chat with Matlwa, Snyckers and Modjaji BooksColleen Higgs:

    Thanks. I bow before the internet's lack of whimmery over the past half-day.
