Everyone dashes off to the west coast just as the sun comes out in West Coast in spring to marvel at the tapestry of colours splashed across our landscape.
Expect endless open spaces and blue blue sky’s and a never ending road leading you straight into our beautiful and wild coast line.
The cold water is crystal blue and the cottages sprinkled along the coast.
Old and sometimes run down they make for magnificent photography. An abundance of bird life and smaller creatures of the desert. On the roads you might come across tumble weed, snakes and tortoise making their way across the vast arid land. If you are in search of the sun, open skies and miles of open spaces then head of to the West Coast.
The Program for 2015 I see is not out yet published. (09th – 13th September 2015)
So lets tell you a little bit about this festival.
In 2014 it consisted of over 100 events in 5 days. It is an opportunity for readers to engage in conversations with writers. Readers to engage with Readers and writers with writers. The Event consists of Book Launches, readings, panel discussions and light chatter about writing . These events are designed to stimulate, entertain and evoke ideas. Encourage reading and books – anything really to do with books.
Writers from across the globe join this festival
“I think of the poignant moment when André Brink arrived at the front of the queue to get his copy of Good Morning Mr Mandela signed by the author, Zelda Le Grange, and the tears that flowed after a few quiet words between the two. And there were countless more moments like that which capture some of what Open Book is about.” Extract from Open Book web page. http://openbookfestival.co.za/reflections-2014/
As you can see the Open Book Festival needs your support
“Quite simply, if we don’t increase our income for 2015, I’m not sure that we’ll have a festival next year. Having said that, I’m confident that we will – quite simply, because we have to. I believe (and I hope you agree) Open Book is too important(and fun!) to die a quiet death.” (Extract)
Where great stories are shared, books are launched and books are bought and sold. They have kids story times See below, Comfortable famous for hospitality and a place to spend some time if you LOVE BOOKS

ABC Story Time
One of the best things we get to learn when we go to school, is we get to learn the alphabet! Today we will read some stories about the alphabet and we will spell out our own names with letters for our rooms.
If A is for apricot, and B is for biscuit, what would C be?
