A tribute to Nadine Gordimer

[Johannesburg, 25 August 2014] - The fifth M&G Literary Festival will be held at the Market Theatre in Newtown, Johannesburg, on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 August.

The festival will be book-ended by two events that form the Friday Festival: a jazz concert at the Orbit Jazz and Bistro on Friday evening (29 August) and a Meet the Authors cocktails and Fine Art event at David Krut Bookstore on Sunday 31 August, after the Literary Festival's final session.

This year's Literary Festival is dedicated to the memory of Nadine Gordimer, who made such memorable appearances at the 2012 and 2013 festivals. In her Nobel prize acceptance speech, Gordimer noted: "Being here: in a particular time and place. That is the existential position with particular implications for literature." The panels and the themes at the festival will draw on that notion, as well as being inspired by Gordimer's short fiction, her nonfiction essays and her many campaigning causes for freedom of speech and expression.
