Literary Festival Feedback

"For the record-Having been involved with KLF for some years, it is always an honour and delight to see this event grow, and the enjoyment it affords so many. I love this Festival unreservedly. Great idea of Ling Dobson, and exceptional organisation of Sasha Campbell." – Rob Caskie 


""A lovely LitFest with a K-word everyone can use: KNYSNA!" – Pieter-Dirk Uys


"I loved being part of the magic of this year’s Knysna Literary Festival - it’s always a privilege to be involved in a project that so sincerely promotes the love of books, and the enormous stories that they contain. Thank you all so much for having me again, I can’t wait for next time." – Sarah Graham


"I had an absolutely wonderful time! I'm going to have to write another book pretty quickly so you can invite me again!" – Lerato Tshabalala


"I would be amiss if I did not send an email to you to say Well Done on a fantastic Literary Festival.  It just gets  better every year.   Your speakers were superb and it is so very well organised. " – Viv


 "Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the Delicious Word Journey on Saturday evening.  The venues were a treat, the speakers brilliant, the food and wine delicious and the taxi service absolutely great. Well done to you and the team for organising such a fantastic evening." – Lynne


“It was a pleasure and a privilege, thank you” – Deon Meyer


“You've got a fabulous festival. There's a genuine love of literature, and an appreciation of writers which I think everyone feel so they're all happy and in return giving of their best. You have the advantage of being a stress free festival. There’s an intimacy and warmth which is rare, I hope you can maintain that in years to come” – Rahla Xenouplos  


“Thank you all again for such a wonderfully warm welcome in Knysna, the festival was absolutely one of the highlights of my year so far and I feel hugely privileged to have been invited to be part of it. You have a very special thing going!! Huge congratulations on the event being such a success this year, you all deserved such a brilliant response”. – Sarah Graham


“I thoroughly enjoyed the level of debate at this year's Knysna Literary Festival. The recipe is a clear winner: beautiful scenery, provocative words and great food and wine. I will have to write another book to be invited again” – Adriaan Basson


“KLF is creative and the format is innovative, with the opportunity to mingle with other free thinkers.

The KLF in my opinion will soon be the literary fest that any worthy author worth his salt will want to be present at.” – Riaan Manser


“What an amazing experience, I will be back next year.” – Mandy Wiener


Ling, it really is wonderful that under your leadership Pam Golding is ‘raising the bar’ for educational and cultural activity in Knysna! We need many more similar events to attract a more cosmopolitan and global resident in Knysna.” – New York visitor


“Pam and I will not miss next year’s event, we have it already booked.” – Andrew Golding and Pam Golding


“I have already diarized next year’s dates!  Would not miss this for anything.” – Deidre Penfold 


Dear Ling, I would be amiss if I did not send an email to you to say Well Done on a fantastic Literary Festival.  It just gets  better every year.   Your speakers were superb and it is so very well organised.  My congratulations to Sasha for her organising and to your lovely lady, who takes the photographs.  She was just everywhere.   Please let me have her telephone number as I want to get some prints, she took of me with a few authors. I think you always go the extra mile in everything you do. - Viv


Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the Delicious Word Journey on Saturday evening.  The venues were a treat, the speakers brilliant, the food and wine delicious and the taxi service absolutely great. Well done to you and the team for organising such a fantastic evening. Alan managed to attend two other presentations – Fate of the Nation and Alan Weyers – and said they were superb. We are now looking forward to next year’s event. - Lynne


Knysna Literary Festival feedback

Huge names like Max du Preez, Prof. Tim Noakes, Frank Chikane and Julian Rademeyer caused quite a large build up of anticipation for the fifth Annual Knysna Literary Festival; but nothing could really prepare us for the sheer spontaneity and rich atmosphere the combination of these and many more South African authors achieved at the well-organized events during these four days.

It is good to see the passion and pure joy that people still take from books, regardless their purpose and we feel honoured to have been invited to share in that wonder. Both well established authors and newer faces, but also the audience took something very special home from the festival.

It has been a great honour for us at Exclusive Books to be part of this endeavour and we would like to thank everyone who contributed to and hosted this pitch-perfect exploit. Apart from the fact that we achieved sales worth R 82 000 it also gave us the opportunity to grow the popularity of these authors and their work at all levels of the industry.

We hope and believe that the Knysna Literary Festival will grow even bigger during the coming years and have its rightful place amongst all the events in South Africa which promote and celebrate reading and literature in general.

Once again, thank you for inviting us to be part of this year's festival. We are grateful for having had this opportunity. 

Warm Regards
