ABOUT JOZI BOOK FAIR
The Jozi Book Fair addresses the weak culture of reading and writing in all South Africa’s languages, that reflect the legacies of apartheid and continuing social inequality in this country. JBF creates readers and writers in all South Africa’s languages, to promote mother tongue and to use all art forms to encourage people of all ages to read. The 11th Jozi Book Fair takes place from 29 August – 1 September 2019, Mary Fitzgerald Square.
Jozi Book Fair makes provision for emerging and established writes, artists, NGOs, Publishers and the Public to exhibit their work and sell books at the JBF. Deadline for application is 9 August 2019.
WHO'S AT THE JBF
Jozi Book Fair is curated from below and 70% of the events are hosted by the public. This enables people from all walks of life to shape the programme of the JBF, thus creating a safe space for discussion and debates. Every year the JBF calls for Social Movements, Authors, Students and general public to participate and host events at the JBF.
