Luminaries Light Up Book Fair

The Cape Town Book Fair is abuzz with excitement – its first day was a slick success, and there are three more days to come.

Nearly every South African writer of note – including many who live abroad – has put an appearance in (notable absence: JM Coetzee) – and several publishers have broken the bank to bring in international luminaries like Alexander McCall Smith (above) and actor Richard E. Grant.

Entrance is only R30; a visit to the CTICC, where the fair is being held, is a must for anyone interested in SA literature.
