The Open Book programme for 2015 has gone live and tickets are now on sale!

The fifth Open Book Festival programme has just launched on Webtickets and once again includes over 100 discussions, debates and workshops over the five days. These events will feature more than twenty international authors and a wealth of South Africans.

Comics Fest and Poetica are both hosting workshops during the week while the Marketplace, discussions and performances take place over the weekend.

About Open Book Festival

Open Book Cape Town is an annual literary festival, the first of which happened in 2011. Dates for Open Book 2013 are 7 – 11 September. The hubs will once again be the Fugard Theatre and much-loved indie bookshop, The Book Lounge.

When Mervyn Sloman and Ben Williams started talking about creating a festival, they had in mind around 60 literary events over 5 days featuring about 15 top international as well as some of the best South Africans writing today. Due to the incredible support Open Book received, that quickly grew into a festival that now includes over 100 events, featuring over 100 authors.
