South African Book Fair


All book lovers should take note of the South African Book Fair (previously known as the Cape Town Book Fair) taking place this weekend in the Mother City. The well-known fair provides interesting insights into the publishing world and is a great platform for everyone to gather and network. The show is particularly geared towards published and unpublished authors, book store owners, book associations and librarians, although all book lovers will enjoy it too. The show is a great escape from Cape Town’s wet and windy winters with cosy poetry corners, book signings and kids zones to keep everyone entertained. The fair has over 250 exhibitors and is considered the most notable of its kind in sub-Saharan Africa. It will be taking place from 13 June to 15 June 2014 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. Tickets will be available at the door at R50 for adults and R20 for pensioners. Children under 18 enter for free. For more information, visit their Facebook page or thebereed.co.za.
