5-10 Sept: NBW

The South African Book Development Council (SABDC), in partnership with the Department of Arts and Culture, is proud to announce National Book Week 2011 (NBW) which is an initiative that aims to celebrate books, promote and share the joy of reading books amongst ALL South Africans. Only 14% of South Africans are active book readers (unbelievably low) and a scary low  5% of parents read to their children. What is this?!

We can, and should, do our bit to help by reading to our nephews and nieces, but also read for yourself (and I’m not referring to just magazines); our pre-school teachers were so very right, “Reading increases your vocabulary!”

Also, let’s support our African authors.
