Well, as usual, I hear about this literary fair late. I’ve never been to and don’t know if I ever will be because I only ever hear about when it’s a few days before it kicks off or it’s already running.
Kinda lame considering that there aren’t that many literary things happening in the Limpopo province. Anyway, I’m Facebook friends with a few Limpopo-based literary folk and these are their events. Go support
