How it all began

The man behind the book

Darryl David, the man behind Book Town Richmond; BookBedonnerd; the Madibaland World Literary Festival, and the only Indian lecturer of Afrikaans, has decided in partnership with the University of the Western Cape, to create a festival dedicated to celebrate only children’s literature.

The other main purpose of the SA FESTIVAL OF CHILDREN’S LITERATURE will be to raise funds to help the Heartlands baby sanctuary to look after the abandoned babies entrusted to their care. Working with Heartlands brings home the truest meaning of the term community engagement. (Heartlands baby sanctuary on the border of Stellenbosch and Somerset West.)
