2015-06-10 06:00

FOLLOWING the success of last year’s Mangaung Book Fair held at the Sanlam Plaza, Omoole Publishing will this year again host a book fair at the St John’s Methodist Church in Batho.

The fair, taking place on Saturday (23/05) from 13:00 until 17:00, will feature the most recent releases by authors Reikantse Manaka, a 10-year-old learner of the Eunice Primary School, debut writer Letshego Tau, advocate Kuni Ditira, regular Express column writer, and Matebello Masasa.

The event will be held in conjunction with the St John Church’s Sunday School and proceeds from the book fair will be donated to the church.

Food and books will be on sale on the day and a jumping castle will be available to entertain the little ones.

“We invite residents of the greater Mangaung area to join us for a day that promises to be great fun and more importantly, we hope the day will not only be about fun, but that the spirit of reading books will be rekindled,” Tshenolo Mokeyane, organiser of the book fair and Omoole Publisher, says.

Books such as Botshelo bo marara by Ditira, From humble beginnings to realizing a dream by Tau, High ten for Reikantse by Reikantse and Mehwabadi ya lerato by Masasa will be on sale on the day
