OPEN BOOK FESTIVAL: Talking Turkey

This should be quite fun. It's me, Lauren Beukes, Rebecca Davis and owner of the Book Lounge & local indie Lit Lord Mervyn Sloman on stage at the Fugard, shooting the breeze. No doubt it will be extremely ungovernable. Bring: fruit to pelt us with. No, really. We will pick it up afterwards and donate it to a shelter. Tickets are R45 - click here to buy.
