Join book lovers, authors and aspiring writers for the 11th annual FLF from 19 to 21 May 2017.

For one weekend each year, the picturesque winelands town of Franschhoek is alive with local and out-of-town bookworms. With literary discussions, book launches, writing workshops, classical music concerts, dinners and loads of books, it promises to be, as always, a truly enriching experience.

The world-renowned festival has two aims: to bring together local and international literary gurus and authors for informal discussions, and also to promote and encourage reading among the Western Cape population (and South Africa as a whole).

Some 90 events will be happening during the festival, including thought-provoking discussions between writers on politics, history, science, writing as a profession, and even social media! Details are available on the official FLF programme.

And in the evenings, enjoy dinner and a poetry or classical-music recital, and maybe even get an opportunity to chat to your favourite authors.

Please note: punctuality is essential –  once an event has begun, you will be denied entry, even if you have tickets. So make sure you arrive on time.
