Only 2 more sleeps till the legendary Franschhoek Literary Festival and if, like us, you are struggling to choose what to see, here are our a few of our suggestions:
#8 For the thrill of it- Vanessa Raphaely and Mike Nicol know how to keep readers on a knife’s edge. Lorraine Sithole finds out how they do it.
#55 Fancy yourself a writer? Join Dianne Stewart for an informative workshop as she shares the skills specific to the writing of personal memories.
#72 Pieter-Louis Myburgh, author of the groundbreaking new book Gangsta State shares how he uncovered Ace Magashule’s alleged corruption, dodgy deals and a relationship with the Guptas, ultimately leading personal enrichment and his rise to power.
#98 Listen to photographers Paul Choy and Heinrich van den Berg tell richly detailed tales without words. They discuss their art of visual storytelling with John Maytham.
Another favourite on our list, #32 Marketing your book: What does – or should- it take for an author to market their book, and isn’t that the publisher’s job? Barry Gilder and Eva Mazza discuss their diverse tactics with Vanessa Raphaely.
