Dibuka Library: Hundreds of New Books For All Ages

    

 

What an astonishing thing a book is. It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.

- Carl Sagan

 

 

     If you're looking to transport yourself into a world of adventure, intrigue, suspense, dystopia or horror then come on down to Dibuka the gateway to Francophone knowledge and culture, at the Alliance Francaise of Johannesburg. Don't miss out on the latest arrival of hundreds of new books and DVD's in French. From crime novels to comics, to children's books, take your pick, Dibuka has plenty to quench your literary appetite weather it is mall or gargantuan. We've got books for all ages.
