Education is a fundamental human right and an enabling right.
Following the success of last year event, we bring you this years ALL AFRiCAN BOOK FAIR packed with exciting sub-events, vendors and unlimited books from the continent for book lovers.
We are thrilled to say we will still have a huge selection of titles on offer for book-loving guests that can make their way to our base this May. From folktale, sci-fi, comic, history, picture-books, fantasy jostled with award winning novels and the best biographical non-fiction. ALL AFRiCAN BOOK FAIR’s doors are open to all book lovers to come along and browse our world-class selection of new titles in person.
Our theme for this years fair is to "Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all' - Sustainable Development Goal 4.
SDG4 in a nutshell:
Ensuring lifelong learning opportunities for all, from early childhood to adult education;
Ensuring equity, inclusion and gender equality;
Ensuring effective learning and the acquisition of relevant knowledge, skills and competencies;
Ensuring the relevance of learning, in terms of vocational and technical skills for decent work as well as for global citizenship in a plural and interconnected world.
For some, books line floor-to-ceiling bookcases or are piled high in children's rooms. But for others, it's a luxury item that they cannot afford. - Grace Dorcas Annan
Education is at the heart of what we want to do. ALL AFRiCAN BOOK FAIR was created to inspire and inform, and we will always love welcoming the next generation of readers to the fair.
