Literary Programme

A dynamic and relevant programme will be presented at the South African Book Fair 2017.

The literary component of SABF 2017 promises a varied line-up of events for diverse audiences, with generous offerings of fiction and non-fiction. There will be everything from readings of children’s books, through poetry and performance, to engagement around contemporary political issues; from book tours and book-club chats to test kitchens for recipe books on local-cuisine; and from practical workshops to ‘philosophy cafés’. With more than 100 South African writers and at least five international guests participating, and more than 60 events on the programme, this aspect of the Fair will amply showcase the tantalising benefits of being part of a reading public.
