2015 Open Book Festival Programme (9 – 13 September)

Confirmed authors for the 2015 Open Book Festival

Alert! The programme for this year’s Open Book Festival has been revealed and we couldn’t be more excited!

Activities start on Wednesday, 9 September, and will run until Sunday, 13 September. Venues include The Fugard Theatre (festival hub), the Homecoming centre, The Book Lounge, the Central Library and the President Hotel in Bantry Bay. Poetica and Comics Fest will once again form part of the programme, as well as the youth fest aimed at younger readers.

A wide range of topics will be covered over the span of the festival, from everyday tragedy, poetry, food and fiction to what it means to be a South African abroad, comedy in writing and power relations in general. To single out names on the extensive list of local and international authors would be a crime. Cape Town, you are in for a treat!
