IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT




So ….as of recently, the Dean of the Faculty of Education of the University of the Western Cape, announced that MadibaLand would move to Booktown Richmond and  become happily married to BookBedonnerd now and forevermore….the way it should be.
The dates however will be pushed back a week to be from Wednesday November 2nd to Saturday November 5th
The programme will be jam packed, but High Teas and afternoon wine tastings will still be held de rigueur!
We hope to see all of our regulars as well a good crowd of newbies.
We have a tremendous line up, some names of which are in the newsletter following.
And we will be staging live talks from the Booktown Richmond HQ which will be streamed around the world.
And we will hold to our promise to bring live theatre to Richmond to honour our patron Athol Fugard.
We hope that we will be seeing many of you in the Karoo dorp just around the corner.


Forever BookBedonnerd and Totally Fugarded,
PCB &  DED

Boekbedonnerd backabuddy cause

Please help us keep Bookbedonnerd alive

Unfortunately as the Northern Cape Provincial Government is not in a position to support us to the degree required for Booktown Richmond to keep up with its commitments to our various programs, we are having to look to Crowd Support in order to maintain and grow our efforts in the village. We are firmly committed to seeing that Booktown Richmond survives and indeed grows.  We have, even at this early stage an extremely exciting line-up of speakers, entertainers and activities.

To ensure that we survive and indeed grow, the planning committee has launched a backabuddy campaign aimed at crowd-funding the event. Please support by spreading the word and, if at all possible, making a financial contributing. Booktown Richmond is in your hands. Forever BookBedonnerd….

You will find the particulars here. We shall be most grateful. Thank you.

Below are some pictures of the 2019 event.
