Prince Albert Leesfees

Prince Albert Leesfees

The Prince Albert Leesfees brings English and Afrikaans South African authors and fresh publications to the quaint Karoo town of Prince Albert.

The first Leesfees was part of Prince Albert’s 250 year celebrations (November 2012). That year we celebrated Karoo writers and poets. The intimacy of a festival where guests could attend every event, with no rushing from venue to venue, had such appeal that the team now hosts a Leesfees every year.

Die eerste Leesfees het deel gevorm van Prins Albert se 250ste verjaardagviering (November 2012), met die fokus op Karoo-skrywers en -digters. Die kompaktheid van ‘n fees waar gaste elke aanbieding kon bywoon, en hulle nooit van lokaal tot lokaal hoef te haas nie, was so gewild, dat die organiseerders sedertdien elke jaar ‘n Leesfees hou.

2019 programme

With so much world focus on global heating and the effects of climate change: fires in Brazil and floods in Indo-China and the Karoo experiencing a lengthy drought, the theme for the 2019 Leesfees: See things differently / Kyk met nuwe oë is most appropriate. Do we look around enough? Are we aware of our surroundings and the wonders we are in danger of losing? Come and explore these and other issues at the 8th Prince Albert Leesfees.

Die fokus op aardverwarming en die impak van klimaatsverandering is oorweldigend: verwoestende brande in Brasilië, vloede in Indo-Sjina en voortslepende droogte in die Karoo. Die tema van die 2019 Leesfees: Kyk met nuwe oë / See things differently is besonder tydig. Kyk ons genoeg om ons rond? Is ons bewus van ons omwêreld en die wonders wat ons so maklik kan verloor? Kom ons bekyk hierdie en ander kwessies by die 8ste Leesfees.
