about jozi book fair


The 11th JOZi Book Fair (JBF) Festival for the public takes place 31 August – 1st September 2019, at Mary Fitzgerald Square, Newtown, in Johannesburg.

The Festival is free, oriented to movement building and strengthening human rights and social justice in SA and Southern Africa. The JBF’s movement building approach enables people from all walks of life (children, school youth, youth, women, workers, adults, academics) ‘to read the word and the world’, linking literature to all art forms (theater, film, poetry, music and visual art).
