Blown Away by Books is a book festival in the Deep South.
The first festival took place in March 2015 and was a resounding success. False Bay College partnered with us to undertake all the marketing, at their own cost. The Festival will coincide with National Library Week each year and involves events at the libraries of Fish Hoek, Masiphumelele, Simon’s Town, Kommetjie and Ocean View, in this way allowing the programmes and audiences to be more diverse. Book-lovers, literary celebrities, poets and performers are given the opportunity to interact. It also raises the profiles of libraries in the different communities, and creates opportunities for local business.
