Franschhoek Literary Festival - 13,14,15 May 2016


Franschhoek Literary Festival

Just then name Franschhoek rolling off your tongue results in the urge to lift your coffee mug, pinky-out before sipping. This book festival, first started in 2007 is one of South Africa’s must-attend book events.

Apologies for the late notice, the event will be taking place within the month in the Western Cape. Binnelanders like me will not need much urging to visit the event after viewing the line up of authors who will be in attendance.
I have cherry-picked a few of the sessions that caught my eye, I hope to bump into you there!
