Neither rain nor wind nor hail (and this is spring in Cape Town…) could keep bibliophiles away from flocking to the Mother City’s Fugard Theatre where the seventh annual Open Book Festival is currently taking place.
With a programme featuring discussions about representation of the Cape Flats, to writing characters on both sides of the law, to illustration masterclasses with internationally renonwed graphic artists, Open Book 2018 has properly haal’d uit en wys thus far!
Running until Sunday, 9 September, those of who are deskbound between 9h and 17h, still have plenty of time to attend the after-five sessions, and can look forward to an exciting weekend programme: be it politics or poetry; theories of translation or troubling stigmas; feminism or fact-checking – Open Book has it all.
