BE A PART OF SOUTH AFRICA'S MOST
INCLUSIVE BOOK FAIR
We’re thrilled to announce that the South African Book Fair will return in September 2019 with a programme set to confirm its standing as the country’s most relevant, inclusive and representative book fair.
Taking place from 6 – 8 September in the Market Theatre Precinct in Newtown, Johannesburg, the Fair will build on the fresh approach of the past two years in reimagining an all-encompassing South African Book Fair for readers and industry alike.
We invite members of the book publishing industry to join us in a year in which we highlight, promote and celebrate our authors, illustrators, new talent, books and, most importantly, the very act of reading.
WE LOVE THE
MARKET THEATRE PRECINCT
A variety of theatres and spaces within the Market Theatre Precinct in Newtown will provide the venue for this year’s South African Book Fair. The theatre itself is steeped in history with its own stories to tell and so provides a compelling context for the Fair.
We would love you to join us in making this our most engaging and stimulating Fair yet – and will be sharing more details with you over the coming months. A rigorous marketing and communication plan is already in place, to help turn the 2019 South African Book Fair into a resounding success. Please note that exhibition bookings open on 3 April for members of the book publishing industry to showcase publishers, books, authors, booksellers and more.
Finally, a warm thank you to the Fibre, Processing and Manufacturing SETA for their continued support of the Fair.
