The Franschhoek Literary Festival is pleased to announce the dates for its highly anticipated 2024 event. Literature enthusiasts, mark your calendars for the literary event of the year set to take place from 17 – 19 May 2024, promising a celebration of words, ideas, and culture.
Building on the success of past editions, the 2024 Franschhoek Literary Festival is poised to captivate audiences with an extraordinary line-up of local, pan-African, and international authors. This year’s gathering will once again attract book lovers and thinkers from around the world, providing a unique platform for the exchange of ideas and the exploration of South Africa’s rich literary landscape with thought-provoking panel discussions and interactive workshops.
“The 2024 Franschhoek Literary Festival promises to be an unforgettable celebration of the magic found within ideas, words, and stories,” said Jennifer Ball, Festival Programme Director. “We’re thrilled to provide a unique platform where diverse voices converge to inspire, challenge, and engage.”
With a commitment to advancing the culture of reading, the festival’s non-profit mandate includes initiatives to support disadvantaged communities in the Franschhoek Valley by funding books, employing library facilitators, and nurturing a love for reading among thousands of learners annually. Regular weekly library lessons across 65 classes were established and the FLF has donated R 1,7 million in books and library materials. It continues to positively influence the reading experience of at least 3,000 learners each year.
