Jozi Book Fair 2011 at Museum Africa (Newtown) promises to be a spectacular show as usual, with a wide range of activities, workshops and projects presented to the public. A unique meeting space for the three key partners – readers, writers and publishers – in the promotion of reading and writing in South-Africa, it aims to “strengthen small publishers, create a market for writers, and give an opportunity for readers to signal to authors and publishers the kinds of stories they are interested in." The French cultural network will be present at the JBF this year again – click here for the floor plan – to present its latest publication and promote French culture. See you there!
