Free Wine For Your Old Books With Leopard’s Leap

Get a free glass of vino from Leopard’s Leap when you donate a book as part of their #Words4Wine campaign at the annual Open Book Festival

If you love wine and have a pre-loved book or two to share, you’ll be able to give back and get a glass of free wine at the 2018 edition of the Leopard’s Leap #Words4Wine campaign from 5 to 8 September 2018 5–7pm at The Fugard Theatre.

Your donation will help fill the Leopard’s Leap bookshelf at the festival and will allow you to socialise with other book and wine-lovers who are attending the festival. If you’re too sentimental to give your books away, you’ll still be able to take part by purchasing a voucher from The Book Lounge to exchange for a glass of wine.

The books will be categorised and distributed to libraries and schools in need of reading material, as well as to the Open Box Library Project. The project consists of boxes that act as mini libraries, which teachers and learners can access throughout the day, without the need for extra staff and admin. The boxes are placed in classrooms and are filled with books, materials for activities and other resources for teachers and learners.

“Sometimes we are overwhelmed by our country’s challenges, but when we become involved, even in a small way, we can make a big difference. By sharing a pre-loved book, you can help those in need of good reading material – and we all know how important reading is! Join the Leopard’s Leap Open Book Festival #Words4Wine campaign and let’s make a difference!” says Leopard’s Leap CEO Hein Koegelenberg.
