Saturday 23 May 2015 sees the Kingsmead Bookfair take place in Melrose Johannesburg.
This event almost snuck by without me being able share it with everyone, luckily I found it in time.
The Kingsmead Bookfair is now in it's fourth year and looking at the stellar line up of not just authors, but industry celebrities I am honestly surprised it has not received greater mainstream coverage. (Then again maybe my head has been in the ground).
Notable names attending include:
Khaya Dlanga, Ferial Haffajee, Moeletsi Mbeki, Michael Mol...the list really does go on much further.

Although only taking place over a single Saturday, looking at the event website, the impression is given that it will really be an event full of interesting people, with the event programme being very well documented. It promises to be one of the better bookfairs to attend during 2015.
