The Politics of Publishing and Bookselling

The second in the 2014 series of SA PEN Dialogues took place at the Book Lounge on the 19 May. “The Politics of Publishing and Bookselling” was a vibrant and thought provoking conversation held under the auspices of South African PEN in collaboration with the Open Book Festival and Cape Town’s largest independent book shop, The Book Lounge. These different organisations have a long history together and are delighted to be extending their collaborative events outside of the five-day Open Book Festival and into the rest of the year. Chaired by Margie Orford, executive vice-president of SA PEN, she chatted to Ingeborg Pelser (publisher at Jonathan Ball), celebrated author, Niq Mhlongo, and Mervyn Sloman of The Book Lounge.
