Authors in the Great Karoo: Programme for the 2015 Richmond Boekbedonnerd Festival (22 – 24 October)

The 9th Richmond Boekbedonnerd Festival is set to take place from 22 – 24 October and promises a refreshing weekend in the area known as “the land of thirst” – the Great Karoo.

The programme is made up of literary greats, controversial journalists, debut authors, columnists, historians and travel writers. There will be no parallel sessions at the festival so don’t worry, you can see them all! Booktown even caters for rugby enthusiasts as the organisers have ensured that nothing clashes with the semi-final of the Rugby World Cup by adding it to the schedule of events. Another bonus: all talks are free!

Have a look at the programme to see what you can look forward to:
