Date: 24th July 2014 to 26th July 2014
The 5th annual Schreiner: Karoo Writers Festival (Cradock: 24 to 26 July 2014) promises to take the event to new heights with a strong programme appealing to a range of audiences.
Lovers of reading, writing and the Karoo can look forward to close encounters with well-loved authors. Etienne van Heerden, Deon Meyer and Toast Coetzer are among the big names already confirmed.
Professor Dorothy Driver (now based in Australia) will introduce her edit of the powerful Schreiner book, From Man to Man; or Perhaps Only (UCT Press) – don’t miss this moment in our literary history.
Expect lots of surprises and discoveries along with programme favourites – including readings, book launches, fireside chats, stoep-sitting and excursions.
The literary walking tour of Cradock was a hit last year, with 60 people walking the words. The 2014 edition promises to be bigger and better.
Once again, Upstart mentors will lead fast-paced multi-media creative workshops with learners from Cradock High Schools.
The festival is part of an exciting 12-month programme celebrating Cradock’s 200th anniversary – the town was founded in 1814.
