The inaugural Abantu Book Festival is taking place in Soweto from 6-10 December, 2016.

The festival is the brainchild of @thando_mgqo (director) while Sweet Medicine author @panashechig will curate the event this year.

The Abantu Book Festival recently announced a partnership with the Goethe-Institut, which will include a Literary Crossroads event featuring NoViolet Bulawayo and Zimbabwean spoken-word poet Cynthia Marangwanda.

The authors and full Abantu Book Festival programme will be announced soon.
