Through the generous support of the Goethe Institute, we were able to attend the 2010 Cape Town Book Fair in July. Out of the fair came important partnerships and invaluable contacts, and we looked forward to attending again this year. So it was a shock for us to read that this year's edition had been axed.
Read the details here.
Organisers cited the non-participation of key publishers in last year's book fair as a factor in their decision to cancel. They promised to reschedule the event for 2012 - and make it a bi-annual affair after that - but it is still a blow for a promising enterprise.
We wish them all the best of luck and hope to be there in 2012.
