The inaugural Rutanang Book Fair was held in Tlokwe from 25 to 27 April 2016. It featured a number of exciting young writers including Unathi Magubeni, Buhle Ngaba, Mpho Matsitle, Kholofelo Maenetsha to mention just a few names. The event saw an influx of people from different provinces and neighbouring countries.
This year the Rutanang Book Fair is shifting spaces – we’re exploring technology. Yes – Rutanang Book Fair 2017 will be hosted entirely on Facebook and Twitter, the two biggest social media platforms that people engage in on a daily basis. We want to meet readers and writers in this online space.
We will engage in exciting topics, poetry and interviews.
The participants are:
- Futhi Ntshingila
- Babongile Zulu
- Sabata Mokae
- Kholofelo Maenetsha
- Chairman Mrwebi
- And YOU – by sharing a picture of the book(s) you are reading, book experiences and videos about your favourite books. Just use the hashtag #ShareABook
See you online!
