Summary
Open Book and Central Library are at it once again...last year they brought you (amongst other things), a successful book domino chain that saw 2586 books toppled. 2014 will see a maze built entirely out of books taking centre stage for the month of March. We would like to invite members of the media attend the launch of this event.

Open Book and Central Library are at it once again...last year they brought you (amongst other things), a successful book domino chain that saw 2586 books toppled. 2014 will see a maze built entirely out of books taking centre stage for the month of March.

Built from books that were destined for pulping, Open Book and Central Library have started work on what looks likely to be an amazing installation. It is through generous donations of books by Penguin SA and New Africa Books that this is possible and their work is added to by local book artist, Keri Muller.

As with all previous editions of Pulp Fiction, librarians and members of the public will be invited to come and take books home with them when the installation reaches its end.

We would love to invite members of the media to join us for the launch event where Central Library and the Open Book Festival will officially launch the 2014 Open Book Festival campaign as well as the maze, plus discuss briefly the reopening of the library and also Library Week.

Launch – 10 March 2014

Time – 10.00

Venue – Central Library (Corner of Darling and Parade Streets)

Breakdown – 26 March 2014

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.
