Open Book Youth Fest

13 March 2024 - 20 March 2024

The Open Book year kicks off with Youth Fest!

Building on the success of our inaugural Youth Fest in 2023, we have been on a continuous journey of learning and growth. This year, our focus is on maximising our impact among young readers and budding writers.

One of the key initiatives we are undertaking is to ensure that books and skills reach individuals who may otherwise miss out on the transformative power and joy that the world of stories offers. To achieve this, we will be purchasing books by all participating writers for donation purposes.

While many of our events take place at schools. and are therefore not open to the public, there are still plenty of opportunities for the broader community to engage with us. We will be hosting a variety of storytimes and workshops at public libraries, the Book Lounge, the Museum of Childhood, and Bertha House.

We believe that by working together, we can empower the next generation of readers and writers, and we would be thrilled to have your support in this endeavour. We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you to Open Book Youth Fest 2024.

Please note that you need to book for all events, even if they are free.

The festival programme is available here: https://openbookfestival.co.za/festival-programme/
