The world would be a better place if we all had the opportunity to read more. This is our belief and the driving force of the South African Book Fair. For the first time, Johannesburg will be able to enjoy the exciting literary programme designed to satiate the appetites of the most voracious reader, as well as inspire new ones. Our campaign theme for this year’s Fair is #DiscoverYourBookself. We believe that the books we read shape us, and as Africa’s largest Book Fair, we’re certain you’ll find your ‘bookself’ here. Imagine 100 authors participating in more than 40 events, 44 new small publishers, 7 publishers from across the continent, a dedicated Kid’s Zone, and a whole day devoted to learners, teachers and librarians.

Now stop imagining, and book your ticket. We’ll be at Turbine Hall, Newtown, Johannesburg for three full days from 31 July to 2 August. Whether you’re a life-long lover of books or are still looking for your book passion, we’ll kindle the flames at the South African Book Fair 2015.
