Abantu Book Festival
December 7, 2017 - December 10, 2017R20
Abantu Book Festival has become an annual pilgrimage for black writers and readers held in SOWETO to celebrate the rich and diverse literary heritage emerging from the African continent. The second edition is planned for 7-10 December 2017.
While the book remains the central medium of the festival, we have poetry and musical performances, writing and publishing workshops, panel discussions and in-conversations, as well as film-screening woven into the mix. The best poets, novelists, playwrights, biographers, literary scholars, musicians, actors, activists, thinkers, and readers from as far as can be imagined, take over the historic location of SOWETO and make it a literary village.
