The Nairobi International Book Fair 2015 will be hosted at the Sarit Centre from 23-27 September this year.

September looks like literature month on the Africa literary scene with a rash of festivals and other activities all over our continent. Here in Kenya we have just come out of the Storymoja Festival and we are already onto the next big book event; Nairobi International Book Fair 2015. This festival which was started in 1996 promises a bigger and better experience for all who attend.

The unique thing about this festival is that all Kenyan publishers are solely behind it with their Kenya Publishers Association. It is also one of the most important events for publishers around the continent to meet and do their trade deals.

So Sarit centre it will be for the next four days ladies and gentlemen. If you aren’t Nairobi we’ll keep you abreast of events. If you are in Nairobi, do us all a favour and go.
