This year's Franschhoek Literary Festival (19-21 May) looks to be enormous fun, with amazing authors and interesting panels. I'll be doing three events:
- Social media for authors (with Pamela Power, Joanne 'Chocolat' Harris, and Victor Dlamini);
- Writing YA for readers of all ages (with Janita Thiele Lawrence, Kiprop Kimutai and Helen Brain);
- And on Friday 19 May, I'll be head-shrinking Harry Potter in a talk entitled, Harry On the Couch - which I once presented at an awesome Harry Potter conference in New Orleans, back in 2007, two months before the release of Deathly Hallows.
The festival is always a tonic - an immersion in words, wine and gastronomy in one of the most beautiful towns in the world. See you there?
