So. How was the Franschhoek Literary Festival? I would be flippant if I used superlatives to describe this engrossing panel discussion on "The rich traditions and global origins of fiction in oral story telling". I had expected something rather bland, but the reality was far different. This was both entertainment and Oral Lit 101 rolled into a convenient package. Victor Dlamini's masterful guidance of the discussion ensured that everyone got their money's worth and left the hall both cheered and informed.
