Picador's 40th Birthday Party: Back in black (and white)
LitNet attended the first Open Book event for 2012, the celebration of Picador’s 40th birthday, held in Cape Town. In the spirit of the redesign of the Picador classics, with their striking black-and-white covers, The Book Lounge was decked out in black and white decor.
Special guests André and Karina Brink shared their love of books with the audience, showing some examples of their favourites and telling stories from their lives shared with books.
The Book Lounge basement was transformed into a makeshift gallery where artworks were displayed and auctioned off. All proceeds from the auction will go towards the library at Parkhurst Primary School.
Bibi Slippers took some black-and-white snaps at the event.
