Jozi Book Fair: This event is held at Museum Africa in Newtown, Johannesburg from the 5th of August to the 8th of August 2011. Khanya College proudly presents the first of the soon to be annual Jozi Book Fair. The Jozi Book Fair is set to be an annual affair, aimed at small progressive publishers, publishers of indigenous works, independent writers and publishers with a social justice agenda. It also aims to engage mainstream publishers and distributors of literature, in an effort to build and promote a culture of reading within the South African landscape. As a direct response to an urgent need to rebuild a progressive publishing movement on the continent the book fair aims to support indigenous language writing and publishing, as well as introduce marginalised writers to a wider audience. Several platforms are offered for writers, publishers, agents, translators and press to engage, debate, discuss and plan new projects. Khanya College is an independent non-governmental organisation based in Johannesburg. It was established in 1986. The primary aim of Khanya College is to assist various constituencies within working class and poor communities to respond to the challenges posed by the forces of economic and political globalisation. For more information phone Sekiwe on 084 3773018 or Tremaine on 084 3773013.
