Homebru 2018: More than 50 books celebrating the best of South African fiction and non-fiction

Exclusive Books has announced this year’s Homebru selection, celebrating the best of South African books.

There are more than 50 books in this year’s Homebru selection, and the languages represented include English, Afrikaans, isiZulu, Sesotho, isiXhosa and Sepedi.

Homebru 2018 features great fiction, biography, history, politics and current affairs, engaging children’s books, comics for young adults, poetry, cookery and more.

The books and authors featured this year include Mpho Dagada’s inspiring Mr Bitcoin, Refiloe Moahloli’s delightful new children’s book, Tullula, Lukhanyo and Abigail Calata’s sobering memoir My Father Died for This, Nozizwe Cynthia Jele’s fantastic second novel, The Ones with Purpose, Dudu Busani-Dube’s epic romance Zulu Wedding, Mandy Wiener’s fascinating and disturbing Ministry of Crime, and Schalk Bezuidenhout’s hilarious Truitjie roer my nie among dozens more.

‘Without local writers there would be far fewer local readers,’ said Ben Williams, GM: Marketing for Exclusive Books says. ‘It’s a great privilege to be able to promote these titles, and Homebru is always one of the most exciting times of the year for those who love great reads.’

Fanatics members earn double points on all books. The official 2018 Homebru catalogue is available to all members of the public for free in stores.

Exclusive Books is planning more than 30 events during the month of June to showcase its Homebru selection: watch out for invitations to its stores in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Pietermaritzburg and Bloemfontein.
