Description: A Celebration of books and writers. The Franschhoek Literary Festival (FLF) is a non-profit organisation established in 2007 with the objectives of: Bringing together a broad cross-section of mostly South African writers and a few popular international authors. Inspiring, delighting, informing and challenging audiences. Raising funds for local community and school libraries and training and placing assistant school librarians, through the FLF Library Fund.
The Festival runs from Friday to Sunday during the third weekend in May, preceded by our Book Week for Young Readers. The events take place in a variety of village venues within a few minutes’ walk of each other, creating a vibrant ambiance in streets buzzing with book-lovers.
The emphasis is on informal discussions and spirited debates between several writers with a chairperson, or one-on-one conversations and occasional talks. Starting at 10:00 and ending at 17:00, up to nine one-hour events run concurrently with half an hour between each (except where otherwise stated).
Fringe events include writing workshops and discussion groups, the Poetry for Life finals, theater performances and contemporary and classical music concerts.
