I'm honored to be a sponsor for the 2020 Bookish Things Bookfest in Capetown, South Africa!
Here is more information on the event as taken from their site:
A portion of our ticket sales go toward raising funds for the Lumin foundation.
We hope to establish such a huge festival / convention that will invite and attract the likes of international book-world celebrities. We are thinking Comic Con big. With panels, workshops, talks and more. To celebrate the book world with everyone, to collaborate, inspire and instill a message that literacy is the foundation of all societies. With such a huge event in the name of books and publishing, it will put our cause on the map, turn some heads and hopefully spark interest with important people who could join in, and invest in our book loving communities and start giving writing and reading a chance. Perhaps we could spark the comeback of school and public libraries in communities all over Africa! -
Together we can.
Why Cape Town?
Our entire event is built around the magnificent venue (Cape Town International Convention Center) Once we secure this prime, well sought after venue it becomes the center of the theme and attention we are after. If you want to attract the BIG names (Royals of literacy) in the business we need a venue that will entice - and what better City than the gorgeous Mother City of Cape Town.
BTBF will feature author Lauren Kate. Her Fallen trilogy is amazing and has been translated into film.
