Darryl Earl David – Book Festival founding father

Something of a serial book festival founder, Darryl Earl David confesses that he’d never attended such an event when he founded his first. But his latest, The MADIBALAND WORLD LITERARY FESTIVAL running from November 20th to 30th 2020, is conceived to be a big one. Online and a joint venture between the University of the Western Cape in its 60th year and Book Town Richmond, it will be freely accessible to all. But what was the thinking behind it, and who is Darryl Earl David – listen as he shares his thoughts….

Darryl Earl David is the founder of many book festivals. His latest festival is the Madibaland World Literary Festival.

Book Stories People is a podcast for people with an appetite for the story behind the story. Whether a book, a play, a movie, poem, song, a blog – or even a tweet, there’s always a back story – more to it than meets the eye. Or the ear. And that’s often where the gold lies. So that’s what I hope to bring you on BSP, the less well-trumpeted tales, the inside intel – from wordsmiths of all disciplines – known, unknown celebrity or completely unheard of. And who am I? You might well ask. Just an independent journalist from the tip of Africa with an appetite for stories that matches your own. Nancy Richards, yours in stories.
