The Cape Town Book Fair 2007 will be a huge cultural event for the general public with more than 300 events taking place, including readings, book launches, panel discussions and seminars. Visitors will not only discover the latest book releases but will also be able to purchase them at the fair.
The first Cape Town Book Fair surpassed all expectations. It hosted 418 Exhibitors from 36 countries; was visited by more than 26 000 people and attracted 2000 International Trade Visitors. It placed Africa firmly on the international literary map. As a result of the overwhelming response, this year's fair is more than double the size.
Pavilions at the 2007 event will include a magical Kids's Zone, unseen to date in this country.
One of the highlights of the 2007 fair will be a focus on book collections. The theme of "More than Black on White" is the lightning rod around which we will compose our interesting Book Collections.
One of the most popular components of last year's fair was the extensive Programme of activities. A programme of this year's public events will be available at the end of April. Cape Town is a vibrant creative city, rich in cultural diversity.
