Soweto, Johannesburg

From humble beginnings in 2016, Abantu Book Festival has become an annual pilgrimage for black writers and readers held in SOWETO–to celebrate the rich and diverse African literary heritage.

While the book remains the central medium of the festival, we present an extensive programme that is a feast for the whole family, which includes poetry and musical performances, writing and publishing workshops, panel discussions and in-conversations, dance, as well as film-screening woven into the mix.

Over four days, the best poets, novelists, playwrights, biographers, children’s writers, literary scholars, musicians, actors, activists, thinkers, and readers from as far as can be imagined, transform the historic location of SOWETO into a literary village.
