Open Book Festival 2016


The Festival presented more than one hundred events, including panel discussions, workshops, masterclasses, readings, performances and more, designed to inspire, stimulate and entertain audiences. As always, most events occurred in The Fugard Theatre, District Six Homecoming Centre and The Book Lounge in Cape Town. As in previous years, Open Book 2016 included Poetica (a dedicated programme of poetry and spoken word events), Comics Fest (including the bigger and better weekend Marketplace) and KidZone.
