New Voices from SA at Edinburgh International Book Festival

I’m looking forward to my two events at the upcoming Edinburgh International Book Festival. Many exciting writers will be there, including familiar faces Achmat Dangor, Lauren Beukes, Patrick Flanery, Sifiso Mzobe, Deon Meyer, Marli Roode and Sindiwe Magona.

On 19 August, I’ll take part in the Amnesty International Imprisoned Writers Series, 5.30 to 6.15pm in the Peppers Theatre. In this series, writers show solidarity with persecuted writers around the world by reading from their work. The theme for the day is Remembering Forgotten Prisoners, and I’ll read a piece by Chinese writer Nien Cheng.

On 26 August, I’ll be talking with Sifiso Mzobe on the panel New Voices from South Africa, with discussion led by Nick Barley.

    Good luck Henrietta, Lauren and Sifiso. It's a brilliant programme.
