The theme is Reimagine and Remake the World. The festival is an exciting space for book lovers, publishers, authors, social movements, activists, children, and youth to ‘Read the word and the World’. 

The JBF addresses the weak culture of reading and creates readers and writers to promote mother tongue and to use all art forms to exercise their social agency. The project works with children, youth, and women throughout the year. 

Over the three days, there will be events for the whole family, including the launch of the Marikana Exhibition, Seminars, Book Launches, Round Tables, Workshops, Cultural Activities, book sales and many exciting activities. 

ENTRANCE is FREE! Register online!
