Picador turns 40 at The Book Lounge with art auctionThe imprint Picador is turning 40 with 40 parties in 40 cities around the world.

Book Lounge is honoured to host the Cape Town bash with a black and white party to celebrate the re-jacketing of 12 of their best books in black on white designs.

To give it a local flair, we will be having an art auction of local artists, from graffiti artists to yarn bombers, who have all donated a piece of work to be autioned and the proceeds will go to our library project this year, which is assisting Parkhurst Primary, Mitchell’s Plain in setting up their own library. Please join us from a glass of bubbly and celebrate the beauty of the book.

Dress code: Black and White

Speakers: The author, Andre P. Brink and his wife, Karina Szczurek will talk about their love for books and celebrat the design of books. They are big fans of hardback copies with beautifully designed spines and jackets!

The art auction will be a silent auction and all are encouraged to partake, we hope to have more than 20 original works which can be bought in aid of a our library project.
