Since its inception in 2005, the Cape Town Book Fair has become known as the premier book fair in Sub-Saharan Africa and after an almost two-year absence, it’s back – remodeled and set to impress – at the CTICC from 15 to 17 June.
As usual, book lovers can look forward to exhibitions by aspiring and published authors, book associations, book distributors, book stores, electronic book traders, libraries, literary agents, printers, publishers and repro agents.
There will be book launches, book signings, author interviews, literary workshops and forums, and a poetry corner on offer. There will also be a dedicated digital zone for eBook fans, as well as a cookbook corner for culinary demonstrations. For younger visitors, there will be a kids’ zone with exciting literary activities. And, of course, there will be an impressive social events calendar too.
The full programme can be downloaded at the website.
General entrance costs R60 per day, students and pensioners pay R30, and entrance is free for accompanied children under 12. Tickets are available through Computicket.
While the morning of 15 June is reserved for trade visitors only, the Fair is open to the general public as follows:
- Friday, 15 June: 14h00 – 22h00
- Saturday, 16 June: 09h00 – 18h00
- Sunday, 17 June: 09h00 – 17h00.
