A literary celebration of books, stories, ideas and authors.

Once again, the Open Book Festival – now in its eighth year – brings bookworms, aspiring writers, comicbook fans and authors together for a five-day fest of talks, panel discussions, workshops, dinners, and more – with an extensive programme that has something for everyone.

Talented local and international guests

With over 100 local and international authors participating – including Guy Delisle, Jonas Bonnier, Nicole Dennis-Benn, Mariana Enriquez, Nozizwe Jele, Niq Mhlongo, Pumla Gqola, Judith February, Haji Dawjee and Mohale Mashigo, to name a few – fans, fellow writers and poets will be captivated by lively discussions, insightful poetry and, of course, wonderful literary works.

Ready, set, read!

We recommend catching up on your reading before encountering your favourite literary heroes at the festival, as there’s a chance they will reveal personal anecdotes and hidden facts about their works.

Last year, the festival attracted almost 10 000 visitors to its 140 events.

Also, check out the programmes for Comics Fest, #cocreatePOETICA, as well as the youth programme for younger visitors.
