This week, supporter and champion of SA literature Lorraine Sithole graces us with her presence ahead of the Gauteng International Book Festival (GIBF) taking place at Ubuntu Kraal in Soweto.
She is the driving force of a few book clubs and has been a pathfinder for some authors.
Sithole speaks to Fred Khumalo about her literary appreciation journey and what inspired the GIBF on December 11.
The festival is set to host two programmes for adults and children, which will include panelists Dr Nokuthula Mazibuko Msimang, Boitumelo Mothupi, Fav Andrew and Tumelo Moleleki.
She says the festival is their way of saying:
.Tickets are R100 online and entrance is free for children under the age of 12 who will be accompanied by an adult.
Children 12 and under are catered for at the @GIBF_bookfes.— GIBF (@GIBF_bookfes) December 2, 2022
