Indie Author Fringe - A free online event for indie authors

The 5th Open Book Festival will be hosted in District Six, Cape Town at the Fugard Theatre.

The event, similar to the recent Kingsmead Bookfair will host an impressive list of local and international talent. Looking at the author line up from their website I see a few names that really make me want to take a road trip to CPT and get away from the bubbling metropolis of Johannesburg. Names like Alex van Tonder, Antjie Krog, Amazon eBook titan Deon Meyer, Gareth Crocker and the controversial PA Zelda la Grange ensure that the programme will have the benefit of years of valuable writing experience.
