Book exhibitions at Dibuka - 14-28 October

2016-book-exhibitions

 

Celebrating 50 years of the famous French publishing house of children's literature, L'école des loisirs, we are showing two concurrent book exhibitions: La fabrication d'un livre and Nos héros préférés.

La fabrication d'un livre shows the full creation and printing chain for a book through a series of portraits and accompanying books.

Nos héros préférés allows you to discover the literary heroes and main characters of your kid's favourite books.

 

Both exhibitions will run from the 14th to the 28th of October at the Alliance Française of Johannesburg.
