Prince Albert Leesfees 2015
Book lovers, listen up! The much anticipated Prince Albert Leesfees will be making its return to the Karoo from the 4th November - 8 November 2015. Currently in its 4th year running, those with a burning passion for reading and the written word flock to the sleepy town for an unparalleled literary festival.
This year's theme has finally been disclosed - 'in search or identity', or ' op soek na identity' - and promises a 4-day event jam-packed with presentations by writers, the launching of books and numerous activities. Headlining the event are the acclaimed writers, Dana Snyman and Leon Van Nierop. Festival-goers can also look forward to a some poetry infused with rap performed by Rimestein and Rhyme Author as well as appearances by actress-writer Susan Coetzer and music legend, Randall Wicomb.
If you're a fan of braai-styled food and looking for a reason to eat it, Dine Van Zyl will be informing guests on how 'boerewors makes you sexy'. If you're looking for tidbits on how to keep your small children stimulated, Tanya O’Connor reflects on the relevance of colouring in. Those who are looking to keep up-to-date with their reading can join in on a discussion with Martin Steyn and Rehana Rossouw about new novels, or if you're a budding novelist yourself, attend Leon van Nierop’s creative writing workshop: Skryf ‘n blitsverkoper.
Highlights of the event include the launch of Louis Botha's book of candid portraits and the Karoo premier of South Africa's art film father, Jans Rautenbach's first film in 30 years: Abraham.
