The countdown to National Book Week 2015 has begun. On the 7th of September, we hit the road in our tour bus to spread the love of reading. Take a look at the programme calendar.
Official events will be held in seven provinces: Gauteng, North West, Free State, Western Cape, Limpopo, the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. Activities include distributing books, reading stories, word games, motivational talks, and interaction with our mascot Funda Bala.
Our programmes cater for children aged 2 and up. There’s also something for the adults: training to encourage parents and guardians to be reading champions in their homes. Some of our events are open to the public. We’ll give more information on that in the next few days. Of course, we also encourage you to host your own National Book Week events from the 7th to the 13th of September, and to #BUYABOOK for someone who doesn’t have one.
