Good morning all!

This week is the annual Abantu Book Festival in Soweto, which will be held from the 5th to the 8th December.

"From humble beginnings in Protected content , Abantu Book Festival has become an annual pilgrimage for black writers and readers held in SOWETO to celebrate the rich and diverse African literary heritage.
While the book remains the central medium of the festival, we present an extensive programme that is a feast for the whole family, which includes poetry and musical performances, writing and publishing workshops, panel discussions and in-conversations, dance, as well as film-screening woven into the mix."

The festival is free to enter, however the evening events cost R20.

Come through and enjoy and supprt local talent!
