Thanks so much for inviting me. It was great to meet you all, and to see the shop. I thought the festival was fantastically well run with something for everyone.
It was super-rad, thank you.
It was a huge pleasure and privilege to be part of the Festival.
Thank you for inviting me to the Open Book Festival. I was tremendously impressed that the festival was so ambitious and smooth running after only two years. The events were all well attended and diverse and I would love to do it again some time!
I was absolutely thrilled to get a chance to attend the festival. I had an excellent time, and can say with real honesty that I found it one of the most interesting and engaging festivals I’ve been to.
Thank you for a great Open Book festival and for including me in the line-up. The organisation was impeccable, the venue beautiful, the events imaginative, the mood relaxed despite all the frantic work that was clearly taking place behind the scenes.
Pure raptury and enravishment!
Thank you so much for inviting me to Open Book. It was without doubt the most enjoyable festival I have attended this year. Frankie and Mervyn did a fantastic job in organising and maintaining a strong element of social responsibility. I was given the chance to see and meet many authors I admire in intimate venues, and with beautiful Cape Town on my doorstep. I couldn’t ask for more. I’m still saving my complimentary bottle of wine for a special occasion!
Just like last year, I feel nothing but grateful to you and Frankie for getting such an amazing festival together, which is showing every sign of becoming a significant literary event.
I had a tremendous time in Cape Town: Open book is now a regular on the major lit fest circuit and I’d be back like a shot. So many lovely people – both speakers and audiences.
