Alert! The main programme for South Africa’s National Book Week, organised under the auspices of the South African Book Development Council, has taken shape.
Although the “week” has already kicked off with the Books on Bikes cycle tour, the bulk of the events take place at Newtown’s Museum Africa from 10 to 13 September (including ANFASA’s Pan African Writers’ Symposium).
The NBW programme is divided into two sections: “events for Industry, SMMEs, Libraries, CSI Programmes, Reading Promotion and other interested parties… and events/ activities for Children, Youth and Adults, School & Community Groups, Adult learners, Teachers, Librarians”.
Here’s the latest programme information, including an hour-by-hour breakdown (in which, if you look carefully, you’ll find Your Correspondent’s name; I’ve the privilege to be on a panel on reading in the digital age with Yoza‘s Steve Vosloo and Van Schaik’s Melvin Kaabwe):
