For the third consecutive year, Leopard’s Leap will be sponsoring the Open Book Festival taking place in Cape Town from 7 – 11 September 2013. They are also proud to host some of the festival’s featured authors at their Franschhoek-based home during August.

The event starts at 18:00 and tickets can be booked via email at or telephonically at +27(0)21 876 8002. Tickets are limited to 50 guests.
