Festival: Franschhoek Literary Festival

This year's Franschhoek Literary Festival, which is taking place over the weekend of 17 to 19 May 2019 in various locations in Franschhoek in the Western Cape, features South African comics creators Mohale Mashigo (Kwezi) and Alex Latimer, and cartoonist Zapiro on the programme.


Another Time. Another Space [24]
Imraan Coovadia (A Spy in Time) and Mohale Mashigo (Intruders) write of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. They discuss how the fantastical often helps us face the darkly real, with Sara-Jayne King in the chair.
When: Friday, 17 May 2019, 13:00 to 14:00
Where: Council Chamber


Risky Writers [31]
What do Harris Dousemetzis (The Man Who Killed Apartheid), Wandile Ngcaweni (We Are No Longer At Ease) and Zapiro (WTF) have in common? They are all uneasy in comfort zones. Tom Eaton finds out just how far they’d dare to go.
When: Friday, 17 May 2019, 14:30 to 15:30
Where: Church Hall


One-On-One: Call Us Frank [44]
Diane Awerbuck and Alex Latimer (North) chat about the benefits and challenges of co-writing fiction and what it takes to become Frank Owen.
When: Friday, 17 May 2019, 16:00 to 17:00
Where: Travellers Lodge


You Just Have To Laugh [57]
Just when you think times are tough, they get tougher. Thank goodness for the sharp wit of Zapiro (WTF) and Hagen Engler (Black Twitter, Blitz & A Boerie As Long As Your Leg). Mike Wills finds out how they keep going.
When: Saturday, 18 May 2019, 11:30 to 12:30

A Mind Of Their Own [66]
