Call for donations in preparation for the 2nd edition of Abantu Book Festival, which will be held this year from 7 - 10 December 2017 in Soweto. The Abantu Book Festival appeals for your support in form of donations.
The Abantu Book Festival is an annual literature festival for black writers and readers held in Soweto, South Africa, featuring authors from South Africa, Africa, and the diaspora. Abantu is the Nguni word for people, which makes this the people’s festival. The literary festival is founded on a vision that says, "We see a Soweto with a vibrant culture of reading."
The festival's mission is to set up a literature event that provides black writers and readers the platform and visibility they deserve. The first edition of Abantu Book Festival was held on 06 -10 December 2016, a five day experience of readings, discussions, music and other forms of storytelling folded in the mix.
