independent bookshop Bridge Books, on Saturday between 10h00 – 12h30.

These workshops and tours are all at the low price of R40 each. As capacity
is limited for all of these events, pre-booking is essential.

This year sees the inclusion of a R20 #BUYABOOK option on all ticket
purchases. In a country where six in 10 people are still living in ‘book-
scarce’ households, this is an easy way for book lovers to play a role in
South African Book Fair’s overall mission to locate books and reading in the
lives of as many South Africans as possible.
