Johannesburg, South Africa

Dates: September 8 – 10, 2017

South Africans in general have a rich heritage and a strong sense of culture, and these are embodied in the stories we tell. Our diversity makes us who we are, but at times we let ourselves down by judging instead of celebrating each other. Sharing #OURSTORIES has a uniquely unifying purpose. This year’s South African Book Fair wants to be – first and foremost – about sharing and celebrating #OURSTORIES and those of our continent.
