For those looking to explore the local market for children's literature this event is just for you.
The 2017 South African Children's Bookfair is promising to be a one-stop event for authors, publishers, illustrators and other industry professionals. Exhibitions, workshops and book launches promise to make it well worth the trip into Boksburg.
Unfortunately, exact details on the speaker lineup, exhibitions and workshops seems to be a bit sparse at the moment. I have asked the event organizer for a bit more detail and will update this post once I have it. This article by the guest speaker at the event James Murua seems to have the most comprehensive info on the event.
