Under the hashtag #OurStories, the South African Book Fair takes place in Newtown, Johannesburg, this weekend. Coinciding with National Book Week, the fair has a host of workshops and panel discussions about various topics.

Literary luminaries, such as Zakes Mda, will be there. Mda will be in conversation with another arts great, Hugh Masekela. Actress and singer Marah Louw will also be there, as will Lebo Mashile, Sindiwe Magona, Deon Meyer and others.

While it is called the South African Book Fair, the rest of the continent is not excluded. Mukoma wa Ngugi, Ayòbámi Adébáyò and Bibi Bakare-Yusuf will also be giving talks.

The fair is for the family. There is a Magic Tent inside which is the Cotlands Toy Library where kids are given the opportunity to play with curated, educational material.
