Quick update on the previous posts about the Open Book Festival, Cape Town, hosting the Edinburgh World Writers’ Conference with 3 events – Censorship Today – a keynote by author Keith Gray, chaired by Mervyn Sloman, the Director of Open Book; A National Literature – an address from novelist Anjali Joseph, chaired by Imraan Coovadia; and Should Literature be Political? – Njabulo Ndebele and Antjie Krog in discussion, with Judith February as chair.
As I mentioned, the videos of these events are promised, but still pending on the Conference website. In the meantime, though, check out Nick Barley, the Director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, on the EWWC Cape Town on the conference blog:
Censorship Today and A National Literature?, plus tweets and pics and general info on the EWWC Cape Town Digest.
